HPDM Will not accept registry changes

HP Recommended
HP Device Manager
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Hello,

 

I have a HPDM server setup on a virtual machine. I have about 40 HPt520 thin clients as well. I disabled USB drives on all of the thin clients when I initially imaged them and it appears that I missed a few. I want to disable them for security reasons obviously. I know that I can do this in the registry. I changed the Start value to 4 (disabled) and the changes do not commit in HPDM.

 

I tried using HPDM to create a task and modify the registry directly and this did not work. I also created another task that deploys the registry file on the local drive of the thin client and the executes it as a script with the command prompt. This did not work either. What I suspect is happening is that the thin client is executing the task and then windows overwrites the registry and none of the changes apply. How can I fix this? Thanks!
