    Missing group policy editor


    I don't find gpedit.msc under my Vista (premium) and there is no related
    snap-in. Maybe is it not present in this Vista version?
    Thanks.

    Hi Giovanni,

    Sorry, the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is only available in the Vista Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise versions.

    If there is something specific you want to do, there is a registry alternative to it. Just let us know what it is, and we will help.

    Thank all for your answers. I need to manage the registry to try avoiding
    continuous restart of windows installer after installing Outlook 2007 (I
    asked for answers about this in another newsgroup). I found a possibible
    solution using group policy, so I looked for it, discovering it wasn't
    present on my system.
    Regards.

    The snapin is actually lusrmgr.msc it is in Windows\system32. It may not be
    available in the Home edition but it is definitely a part of life in
    Business and Ultimate.

    Got to Windows\system32 and type

    dir l*.exe This will give you a list of all APIs beginning with l. The one
    in question should be one of them.

    Alo you may find these two APIs in Windows\system32 useful: gpupdate.exe and
    gpresult.exe

    Giovanni,

    You might check in the "Run" and "RunOnce" in Method Three in this tutorial to see if you have a entry responsible for the installer restarting. It would not hurt to look through Windows Defender and MSCONFIG either.

    Startup Programs - Enable or Disable

    If you can post a link to the possible solution with gpedit.msc, then I can find the registry equivalent faster for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Thank you, but my Vista version is Premium, no program of these is included
    in my version.
