I followed the instructions and though was doubtful, it worked. I no longer have a reference to an IT policy.
If I might.... it would be a good idea to conclude the IT Policy Procedure with a comment that the change to the Registry should be removed after the successful operation and after the device is removed from the PC.
If I missed something, and the edit needs to remain (forever?) then please advise.
Thanks to the authors and posters who directed me to the instructions.
