Windows 7: Win7 Home Premium: replacement for gpedit?

Oh terrific. Finally, at the bottom of the page it gives the answer to Troubleshooting Home Premium:
If you are troubleshooting gpedit.msc in Windows 7 Home Premium, it does not exist; you need to upgrade to the Ultimate edition.
That certainly doesn't go far in answering the question "How do I add a shutdown script to Win7 Home Premium?".

Ah! Now THAT sounds like answer I needed. Thank you!

Edit: Or maybe it isn't the answer I needed. "At shutdown" doesn't seem to be an option. Is there an event that I can use as a trigger during shutdown?

Don't be sarcastic??? Hmm. I've never tried that. I'm not sure it can be done.

I've looked at those examples you included. The concepts are clear but I'm not sure how to adapt the to my needs. I don't think I have any problem creating the task, but I don't know enough about Windows "events" to know how to trigger the task. Is there an even available as a trigger that is guaranteed to happen only during shutdown? I didn't see anything obvious, but I could easily have missed one.

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
You will probably find the following snippet of interest.

Ah, but my modifying the directory with regedit presupposed that I know what I'm doing - an unwarranted assumption. Actually, using gpedit makes that same assumption, I guess

Yes it does, and it means that you readed all or part of for your needs. It takes a very long time to mind all this matter in your brain and have the knowledge to set up it. It is huge and both solution are long.

The one solution will be to upgrade to a Pro version, and it can be done very easily with a Windows Anytime Upgrade, therefore you'll be able to manage group policy settings without editing the registry.

Not much choices are offered here appart learning what is provided here.

I decided to bite the bullet and do the upgrade (even though it irks me to have to upgrade just to get a safe way to implement a shutdown script. And strangely, Windows shut down (twice) with no trouble during the upgrade process, and shutdown cleanly the one time I've tried it following the upgrade. Maybe I don't even need gpedit now that I have it.

Oops....I'm sure you will enjoy some of the benefits of the Pro version. That might be a misplaced file that had bug you with the Home Premium.

I did either upgraded my Home Premium to the Pro version with no regrets at all.

You can find in the tutorial section the comparison of the differents Windows 7 versions to get an idea of what you have been upgraded.:
