Hello All,

I've got the Windows ACL module installed, and did some looking online, found some information but nothing clear about using this to manage registry permissions.

Is it at all possible to manage the registry permissions via this module, if not, what would be the best way to approach this (possibly through the powershell module)?

The Powershell would be like follows:

I'm a system admin at medium financial firm and we have been using puppet for past 2 years. It has helped in a big way to minimize our build/configuration time.

I've been trying to figure this out as well. please correct if i'm wrong, but as my understanding, Windows ACL does not support Registry Permissions, it only supports at File System level.

I've tried to update registry permissions through powershell module and have not been successful. Still trying to find work around through puppet.

I believe this should be implemented soon.
