  • I think I know what the problem is. The GPOs have been created in 2008 r2/win 7. To get it too work with xp I need to configure another GPO made in 2003/xp for the xp machine.

  • There is also an even simpler way to do it. On the second tab in a folder redirection menu there is checkbox for applying to windows xp, 2003 and 2000! It only works on desktop, appdata, startmenu and documents - but if you tick documents, you can also do pictures. music and videos. I still use separate GPs for more control, and I can also redirect favourites (favourites in 7 redirection and an .adm file in XP)
