    No, because Vista Home Basic and Home Premium do not have (among other things) the Group Policy Editor (just as was the case with XP Home.)
    In any event, gpedit is simply a GUI into various registry settings.  Anything in particular that you're needing to do?

  • Hi,

    There are some settings restrictions in Home Basic and you cannot fine tune anything you'd want. Go to Control Panel and see Administrative Tools.

    This is not a finetune this is a big security hole in vista basic premium and home....

    any user can access to your computer via guest, anonymous long on...etc....

    I think that MSFT should release a patch to solve this vulnirability and not pretend that this is a fine tune...(it's a security black hole)....

     

    Thanks.

    You noticed that too? I was mostly interested in only viewing the policies, but there were some I wanted explore in depth. I spent hours searching and findly I found that policies were available in my Home premium. One of the things which kept me search was that I found gpedit.dll. Since that was on the machine, I figure that the policies had to be approached from some other direction. So I too would like to know why gpedit.dll is in the home versions?
