Data type Range Default value
REG_DWORD 0 | 1 0


Directs the system to ignore the customized run list for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier.

This entry stores the setting of the Disable legacy run list Group Policy. Group Policy adds this entry to the registry with a value of 1 when you configure the Disable legacy run list policy. If you disable the policy or set it to Not configured, Group Policy deletes the entry from the registry and the system behaves as though the value is 0.

Value Meaning
0 The policy is disabled or not configured. Windows 2000 adds any customized run list configured for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier to its run list.
1 The policy is enabled. The system ignores the run list for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier.

A run list is customized list of additional programs and documents that the system starts automatically when it starts. These programs are added to the standard run list of programs and services that the system starts.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Disable legacy run list policy (User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon/Logoff).

Note Image Note

This entry can appear in both HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER. If this entry appears in both subtrees, the value in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE takes precedence over the value in HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

Tip Image Tip

The customized run lists for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier are stored in the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Run. They can be configured by using the Run policy in System Policy Editor for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier.

For detailed information about particular Group Policy settings, see the Group Policy Reference (Gp.chm) on the Windows 2000 Resource Kit companion CD.
