falseList Element

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The falseList element is used to set the multiple registry values when a boolean element is set to the false state.


     <falseList defaultKey="<placeholder for registry subkey>">
       <item> … </item>


Attributes Required Description

defaultKey Attribute


Represents a default registry subkey for all items.

Child elements

Element Required Description

item Element


Represents a registry subkey with an associated value.


For simplicity of documentation, nested elements located one level down, known as child elements, will only be described for a given element.


The falseList element is an optional element. If you use the falseList element when defining a boolean element, you must define at least one item element. If not, the Group Policy Object Editor will display an error.

You can define a maximum of one falseList element for a boolean element.

There is no limit to the number of items that can be defined for a single falseList element.


This XML fragment demonstrates the use of the falseList. The first two registry subkeys are set to a string value and a decimal value, respectively, for the boolean element false state. The third registry subkey is deleted for the boolean element false state.

        <item key="Software\Policies\Examples"
        <item key="Software\Policies\Examples"
            <decimal value="10" />
        <item key="Software\Policies\Examples"
            <delete />
