Hello there

I know vista home premium does not come with Gpedit, but there are some ways you can get this on home premium.
I my self just have home premium 32 bit, i have tryed changing the values in "LmCompatibilitylevel 3" to "0" or "1"
but this does not work, which is obvious if there are no files, but apparantly this seems to work for some people.

Is there anyway i could get the files, or copy them from another computer that has gpedit.
but there again i would need help with this, as i don't know how its done, but a friend of mine has vista ultimate so that would not be a problem.

Or maybe you can download these files from somewhere, anyway thats about it.

Thankyou by the way for your replys..... :huh:

Thanks figgis41

That link seems pretty straight forward to try, i'll give that a try tomorrow.
The second link figgis, i do not have a installation disk, this OS was preinstalled.

But i will just have to wait for this windows vista ultimate laptop, till tomorrow and i hope this should work..
Can i asked you if you think this will work figgis... :huh:

Yeah, figgis i thought it would at first, until you get to the very end and find it doesen't or you run into problems
Is there no method, that you can follow to the letter, so you know for sure it will work

hi,,, amber,,,, the link to make a bootable flash drive is for your friend to make you one with there full vista disc,,, as like any full vista disc it carries every addition of vista and is determined which version it loads on installs by the product key,,,,
i think the only to test out the Gpedit link is to suck it and see,,,, back up the reg first just encase it goes pete tong.
good luck.

OK, figgis, i will do a little more searching first, and make a few notes.
Will copying these files into the C:\Windows\system32 and C:\Windows\INF do any harm if this does not work



Copy WindowsS\system32\gpedit.msc,fde.dll,gpedit.dll,gptext.dll,wsecedit.dll.These files can be found in a Vista Bussiness/Enterprise/Ultimate.If


This is quote from another web-site, very simalar to your link, i thought i would mention this, i already have 4 of these files.

gpedit.dll
gptext.dll
wsecedit.dll
fde.dll

I am not sure if this would have caused any problems installing these files when i have these files already installed, it seems i just need the "gpedit.msc" file

OK, figgis
I will probably find a little more about it before i go and try this.
judging by what i have seen anyway, there 's no replys to these problems people are having.

I think if i try it, and do have a problem, and with me being new in this area i would not no what to do, so i will learn a little more first about it.

Thanks for your advice, figgis :huh:
