Windows 7: Win7 Home Premium: replacement for gpedit?

Win7 Home Premium: replacement for gpedit?

I'm a Windows 7 newbie and have just run into a shutdown problem involving an M-Audio sound card. The problem was solved a year ago with a .bat file to be run at shutdown, but implementation involved the following steps:
4) Open "run" from start menu and enter "gpedit.msc" (without quotes) and hit "OK"
5) Now navigate from right pain of window "User Configuration" > "Windows Settings" > "scripts (Logon/Logoff)" > "Logoff"
6) From window that opens from clicking "Logoff" Click "Add" then browse to where you saved "Audio Stop.bat" earlier and double click on it.
7) Hit "Apply" and close.

Great! No gpedit in Windows 7 Home Premium. (Can't trust us with tools like that, I guess.) So how do I do this implementation in Home Edition?

Unfortunately Home Premium doesn't come with the snap-in

Can't it be reinstate like it was in XP Home with the Pro version of gpedit.msc?

There is also this Group Policy Registration Table

You can basically edit anything you would using gpedit.msc, except you will have to use regedit and use that table to set the values according to what you wanna do

Please understand that I'm pretty Windows-ignorant. If I understand what you've said, the structure is the same, but the tool isn't included. (I was afraid maybe the technique for running shutdown scripts had also changed.) So the Home edition provides no tool for incorporating shutdown scripts? I don't think I should try the regedit solution withing seeing EXACTLY what I need to change.

BTW, I don't understand the reference to the Solarwinds WMI Monitor at all. Does it include a group policy editor?

I think, but not certain. you can run as a Task in Task Scheduler and set the time to during shut-down.... Not sure though.

I believe it has the capabilities to do with gpedit can do, just in a different way.

You could read some here:

You can perform the same operation using the same batch file by setting up a log off "task" in the task scheduler (Control Panel\System and Security\Schedule Tasks).
