You can remove the toolbar by modifying the Menu Band CLSID registry subkey in the virtual registry. You can perform this registry modification when you create, update, or start the sequence.

How to modify the .osd file by importing the .reg file

This section describes how to modify the .osd file to apply the Menu Band registry modification to the virtual registry when you start an application by using the <SCRIPT> element to import a .reg file.

To create the .reg file, you must modify and then export the registry. Perform these modifications from the sequencing station without the Sequencer running.
  1. Start Registry Editor.
  2. Expand the following registry key:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}\InProcServer32
  3. Right-click (Default), and then click Modify.
  4. Clear the Value data box, and then click OK.
  5. Right-click InProcServer32, click Export, and then save the .reg file.
  6. Exit Registry Editor.
  7. Open the .osd file by using a text editor.
  8. Type the <SCRIPT> element and the child elements in the <DEPENDENCY> element as follows.
    <DEPENDENCY>
      <SCRIPT TIMING="PRE" EVENT="LAUNCH" PROTECT="TRUE" WAIT="TRUE">
        <HREF>%SystemRoot%\regedit.exe /s "PATH/FILENAME.reg"</HREF>
      </SCRIPT>
    </DEPENDENCY>
  9. Save the .osd file, and then exit the text editor.
Review the .reg files for information that should not be imported, as shown in the following sample .reg file.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}\InProcServer32]
@=hex(2):00,00


The .reg file can reside in the sequence or in a remote network location. Make sure that the user who starts the application has access to the .reg file.

          <REGVALUE REGTYPE="REG_STRING"></REGVALUE>
