Automating the Installation of .REG Files

IIs there any way of running multiple .reg files in, say, a .bat file?

I know that when you install .reg files individually, you have to acknowledged a couple of pop-up windows; however, is there any way of suppressing these pop-ups so that I can run several of them in, say, a .bat file?

Or do I have to do (all) individually?

I'm just about to upgrade to Windows 11 v 21H2 (Build 22000.194).

There is one really cool app that was developed as an Alpha and was never pushed forward but works really, really well with .reg files, just in case it is not mentioned in that list of things from Google:


I do believe it will allow opening multiple .reg files, and you can merge them all, or only a subset, which I find to be really cool when setting up apps after a clean install....

But if you want true automation, in that you run a program / batch and it executes, this is probably not something that you will be interested in. Still, though, there is the link so you can evaluate it.
