LocalGPO Tool for Windows 8.1

    Question

  • I've downloaded the latest SCM 3.0 but the LocalGPO tool will not work.  It tells me that windows 8.1 is not supported.  Is there an update that I am missing or a work around?

    Thanks,

    Peter

  • I was able to enable the MSS settings by editing the LocalGPO script. Specifically the Chkosversion function.

    If(Left(strOpVer,3) = "6.2") and (strProductType <> "1") then strOS = "WS12" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "6.2") and (strProductType = "1") then strOS = "Win8" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "6.1") and (strProductType <> "1") then strOS = "WS08R2" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "6.1") and (strProductType = "1") then strOS = "Win7" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "6.0") and (strProductType <> "1") then strOS = "WS08" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "6.0") and (strProductType = "1") then strOS = "VISTA" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "5.2") and (strProductType <> "1") then strOS = "WS03" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "5.2") and (strProductType = "1") then strOS = "XP" ElseIf(Left(strOpVer,3) = "5.1") and (strProductType = "1") then strOS = "XP" Else 'strMessage = DisplayMessage(conLABEL_CODE002) 'Call MsgBox(strMessage, vbOKOnly + vbCritical, strTitle) 'Call CleanupandExit strOS = "Win8" End If

    Essentially I just told it that the OS was Windows 8 and to not give off any errors in the function. Chances are this is not supported but it worked for my needs.
