Server 2012 PAC file GPO for Windows XP

    Question

  • Switced to a new proxy server and need to change the URL of the PAC file in the GPO

    The GPO was created on  Server 2003 DC (Has since been removed)

    This used the no longer existing the "Internet Explorer Maintenance" settings

    i used the GPP settings for IE 8,9,10,11 but they seem to work only for Windows 7 and not for Windows XP Clients.

    What solution is there for Windows XP?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    If you configured the Group Policy settings via GPP, we should install the Group Policy Client-Side Extensions (CSEs) on those Windows XP client machines that we plan to deploy preferences items. For details, please refer to the following article.

    In addition, you should upgrade IE on XP machine to 8 version.

    Is GPP with CSEs the only option for XP?

    No.

    You can use any WS2003 or WinXP machine, install the GPMC/adminpak, and this allows you to use the old IEM method.
    You can also use the GPMC/RSAT method for IEM on WS2008R2/Win7 as long as you don't install IE9/10/11 on that GP editing member computer.

    You can administer domain Group Policy from any member computer or any version Windows OS, if you install the applicable adminpak/RSAT on that machine and login to the machine with your privileged GP-admin account.
