    Sure, as I have done. But there are people, rightly or wrongly, who feel intimidated by directly editing the Registry, so an executable that simply is a one-click operation to make the changes, as well as the fact that it doesn't need to be installed to run, is good for their needs.

    Still, yeah, making and running a .reg file as you've shown will do the same thing, and a little editing will give you a .reg file that'll do the opposite if you so wish. Plus they learn something. But viva la choice and all that.

    Save as Allow10.reg - then just double click .reg file to apply..
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
    "DisableGwx"=-
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "DisableOSUpgrade"=-

    Do a clean install with express settings and watch the fun. You'll be asked to upgrade before you can even log in for the first time. Before you get the chance to do any of the above.
