Reliable Tweak to add gdedit to Win 7 Home Premium

As Win 7 Home Premium doesn't contain the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), is there any tweak to add gpedit to Win 7 Home Premium?

I have laptop with licensed win7home & as my friends will also play with it, I want to just have restricted user account also, so that I will log on with it when I am with my friends. They are very naughty.

You could do an Any Time Upgrade to Pro

For a cheaper method, see here: Add Group Policy Editor Gpedit.msc to Windows 7 Home and Starter Editions | The Windows Club

The method Ztruker linked to, written by a member here davehc, does work. Read down through his comments further down:

Quote:
Andy and I corresponded on this project by Email. It had been successfully employed by members on other forums, and I could not understand the negative feedback here. After investigation, I realised this was, perhaps, for 32Bit only. perhaps a member could confirm it works for 32 Bit?

However, I installed Home premium 64Bit and played with the program. The answer ( at least for me, and I really hope for all) was simple. The installer is unable to locate where to put the GpEdit.msc file.

OK. Try this.

I have zipped Gpedit.msc (64Bit) here: (gpedit.rar - download now for free. File sharing. Software file sharing. Free file hosting. File upload. FileFactory.com ).

Download, Unzip and move it to Windows - System32. Now, try, in the RUN box Gpedit.msc. ”

Investigated totally now. Installed the 32Bit Home.My last info works for both 32Bit and 64Bit. members MUST run the installer, but it cannot find the path so then they manually transfer the GPedit.msc to System32. The installer sets up the .dlls and other items.
I successfully installed it on my Home Premium using that method. A Guy
