Jason,

In case you and Chuck are still trying to get this to
work, here's what's worked for me.

In startup.bat I have the following:
c:
cd c:\chain
regedit /s c:\chain\startup.reg

Here's my startup.reg:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
Folders]
"Desktop"="P:\\Desktop"
"Personal"="P:\\My Documents"
"My Pictures"="P:\\My Documents\\My Pictures"
"My Music"="P:\\My Documents\\My Music"
"My Video"="P:\\My Documents\\My Videos"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
Shell Folders]
"Desktop"="P:\\Desktop"
"Personal"="P:\\My Documents"
"My Pictures"="P:\\My Documents\\My Pictures"
"My Music"="P:\\My Documents\\My Music"
"My Video"="P:\\My Documents\\My Videos"

I based my .reg file on what I exported using
regedit.exe in Windows XP.  All the above directories
already exist on the P: drive.

Something I noticed was that the export function used
"\\" instead of "\".  Perhaps that makes a difference
in getting the import to work when running from the
batch file?  Though I've only tried this in Windows
XP... perhaps older versions use "\".

David
