Deploy Settings Using Registry Files


You can deploy registry file to multiple machines to adjust the customized settings without having to do this manually on each separate computer.

ISL AlwaysOn settings are stored in the registry. Therefore, it's possible to make changes to ISL AlwaysOn settings by adjusting their stored values in the registry. Additionally, it's possible to set the settings inside of the ISL AlwaysOn settings window, then export the correct registry path and edit the created registry file which can then be used on other machines. This registry file can also be deployed to multiple machines at once using deployment tools to then adjust the required settings without having to do this manually on each separate computer.

Step 1

Open ISL AlwaysOn settings on the tray icon and click "Settings".

Step 2

Adjust the desired settings and "Save" the changes.

For this example, we will enable and adjust the following settings under Desktop Sharing:

  • Show notification of incoming connection
  • Notification timeout: 20
  • Allow local user to reject connection
  • Default: Reject

Step 3
Open "Registry Editor" and navigate to "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ISL Online\ISL AlwaysOn".

Step 4

Right click on the ISL AlwaysOn folder and click "Export" then choose a location to store the exported registry file.

Look at the the window panel on the right and take note of the new settings:

  • "notify_allow_reject"="true"
  • "notify_reject_default"="true"
  • "notify_show"="true"
  • "notify_timeout"="20"

Step 5 (Important!)

The exported registry file contains all the registry entries which are stored in the ISL AlwaysOn folder.

Step 6

Clean the created registry file as seen in the example pictured above.

Only the new/changed settings are needed along with the path and the first line "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00".

Important: You should keep only the changes and remove everything else with exception of the path and the first line - if this process is not done, the deployed registry file could break the ISL AlwaysOn connection / installation.

Note: If you are unsure whether you have cleaned and prepared the registry correctly, you are welcome to contact us and we will help you by double checking your created registry file.

Step 7
You can now copy and run the cleaned up file on another PC with installed ISL AlwaysOn in order to duplicate those settings.

Important: We strongly suggest testing the created registry on a computer which you have access to (via SSH, RDP, ...) and confirm that the created registry works as expected.
