Hi,

We are planning a deployment of WDS 3.01 and are looking for a way to disable the deskbar via group policy or registry setting. In WDS 2.66 there was a policy to manage this setting which seems to be missing in version 3.01. Does anyone know another way to control this behavior via the registry or policy in 3.01

Thanks,

John

I got this answered in the development forum:

It's not defined in the adm file anymore, but the old 2.x policy key is still checked. Setting the following regkey will stop the deskbar from displaying.

Code Snippet

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\DesktopSearch]
"DB"=dword:00000001
