Most desktop administrators quickly become familiar with the need to make adjustments to the Registry on remote computers. The free PolicyMaker™ Registry Extension is a true client side extension (CSE) to Group Policy, providing full registry management capability. The interface is simple and configurations are communicated to client computers through Group Policy. When Group Policy refreshes on a client computer, the registry is updated.
Microsoft announced October 2, 2006, that it acquired DesktopStandard Corporation, a leading developer of Group Policy-based enterprise desktop management products.
When you try to download Policy Maker from DesktopStandard website, you will be redirected to Microsoft’s website because Microsoft put this tool into their roadmap for Windows Server 2008. Good news, you can use the link that I found for Policy Maker Extension below:
Download and install the polreg.msi file
Go to program files folder and copy the following file to the network share that all clients have access to. Here is the file to copy…
Open your domain group policy editor and right click on Administrative Templates
Now add the desktopstandard.adm file and set some policies…start with the software deployment policies.
Now, in the group policy editor, go to User Configuration section and expand user settings… here you will find the registry.
Simply right click on registry and select New–> Registry Item.
