Desktop Registry File

Whenever I begin a new customer engagement, I always provide Oracle's recommended Windows registry settings that prevent IE & SmartView timeouts.  Some customers have complained about SmartView graphic flickering issues, which require additional registry changes.

Here, therefore, is the combined registry file I use that address all of these issues.

If applying on a one-off basis, simply copy & paste all of the text you see below this paragraph into Notepad or your favorite editor.  Name the file whatever you want, but change the filename's extension from .txt to .reg.  Double-click the .reg file and then click OK/Yes when prompted to merge the changes into your registry.  If you have many Hyperion users who need these changes, instead forward the paragraph below to your IT department and ask they be pushed out via "Group Policy Update" - your IT department will know what that means.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"KeepAliveTimeout"=dword:0002bf20
"ServerInfoTimeout"=dword:0002bf20
"ReceiveTimeout"=dword:00075300

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Toolbars]
"DisableWindowTransitionsOnAddinTaskPanes"=dword:1

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Graphics]
"DisableAnimations"=dword:1
