Gpedit.msc not working in winxp


Hi,

Click here to download English gpedit for windows XP and follow the below mentioned steps:

Extract the downloaded file and put the below mentioned file

appmgmts.dll
appmgr.dll
fde.dll
fdeploy.dll
gpedit.msc
gpedit.dll
gptext.dll

into %SystemRoot%\system32 folder (most often it's just c:\windows\system32)

Now, put the below mentioned file

system.adm
inetres.adm
conf.adm

into %SystemRoot%\system32\GroupPolicy\ADM\ (create if this folder doesn't exist)

Finally, run these commands one by one in the CMD window:(Start>run)

regsvr32 gpedit.dll
regsvr32 fde.dll
regsvr32 gptext.dll
regsvr32 appmgr.dll
regsvr32 fdeploy.dll

That should make gpedit.msc callable as Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc


Thanks and regards,
Jitha

All work of gpedit.msc


Although the Group Policy Editor console (gpedit.msc) is mostly used by administrators of networks and domains, it also has uses for a stand-alone home computer. One application is to allow convenient and easy editing of the Registry so that a variety of tweaks or changes to the system can be made. These settings are known as policies and are stored in a special hidden folder

I am not work with my gpedit.msc


Unfortunately Windows XP Home edition does not have group policy editor and can not connect to a domain. You will need to upgrade to XP pro in order to have this functionality.

How do we remove balloon tips from vista home?


Here is how to disable balloon tips in windows vista.

Click start and go to run. Type gpedit.msc (this is used to open group policy) and press enter. Now open User configuration, then Administrative template after that start Manu and finally Taskbar.

Now choose remove balloon tips, right click with mouse and open properties.

Now in option enable it and click ok. Close the gpedit and reboot the system.

Congratulation you have disable your awful balloon tips in windows vista.

Gpedit.msc is not available in windows vista home and premium edition’s not to worry we can do the same from registry in windows vista home and premium edition.

Again go to run (windows key + R) and type regedit and press enter.

Expand registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER >> SOFTWARE > Microsoft>> Windows > Current Version>> Explorer > Advanced.
Right click and create new Dword value and give name as EnableBalloonTips.
Give value as 0(zero)
