NOTE that you will never be able to find gpedit.msc on Vista Home Premium. It
is not available to users of Home Premium -- only Business and above.

IF you were by some chance to find it in an obscure subfolder of an obscure
subfolder of "Windows\System32", opening it would result in a message
somewhere along the lines of "This module is not available to users of Vista
Home Premium. See the Network Administrator...."

"Computer Administrator" no longer means what it used to, apparently.

Hi Donald

Just for information, The MMC tools have never been available on any Home
version of Windows. They are primarily a tool for Domain Administrators and
these versions cannot join a domain.

However, these versions can use registry settings as an alternative to
achieve many (but not all) of the options in GPedit or SecPol.
