Windows 7: Group policy on local machine not on network

Group policy on local machine not on network

Hi !

Windows 7 group policy

I've read a lot of post on this topic but haven't been able to find a clear answer to this question.

Is it possible to create different policies on a local machine and somehow assign these policies to the groups logging in on this machine ? Seems to me that changing the group ploicy affects all users.

The machine is not on a network. It is a computer for test purposes in the field not having a domain server to handle the group policies.

Kind regards

Gpedit does change group policies, and all users in that group are affected. I am a little confused as to what you want to do to the users.

I want to disable as much as possible in the user group. Not in the administrator group.

The only thing the user should be capeable at is :
- Log in and out
- Start the test application from a short cut on the desktop
- Shut down the computer

No acces to any other programs.

kahr,
WIN key | secpol.msc | enter key

Investigate the leafs and branches of the tree in the lleft-hand pane.

User Rights asssignment, and App-Locker will probably be of interest to you.
