    How to launch Group Policy Editor


    Hello guys!

    I need to know how to launch Group Policy Editor. I already know how to launch it via
    Code:
    gpedit.msc
    But thats not working for me. Maybe because i have SSD disk and I have disabled search and indexing.

    So hopefully some genius out there might know of a another way of launching group policy editor.

    You could try this

    Windows + R would open RUN
    Try to Type under Run see whether it brings

    Or

    Go To C:\Windows\System32\Gpedit

    Try the Method 2 from this article

    How to Open the Local Group Policy Editor in Windows 7 and Vista My Digital Life

    If that didn't work try

    Start > CMD > Run as admin > SFC/ SCANNOW

    It certainly has nothing to do with the search configuration. Have you looked in Windows - System 32 to see if the file exists?

    Actually there is no hint of the file in windows/system32 folder or anywhere else. It seems like gpedit.msc doesn't exist.

    By the I am using windows 7 home premium. Is it possible that home premium version was never supposed to have this feature?

    Oh. Your profile says Ultimate. There is no Gpedit facility in Premium.

    I am sorry the profile is for my desktop...I am currently talking about my Netbook which has home premium.

    PS: Is it possible to like get gpedit.msc somehow???

    You can try copying gpedit.msc from your Ultimate machine to the Home Premium and see if it works. Many times you can do that. I don't have access to Hom Premium to see if it works.

    Let us know if it does.

    I was going with your System spec .. I'm sorry i should have asked you. Nope in Windows 7 Home premium we have have that feature. I don't think there is a way to get it. .
