    GPO's apply fine, GPP's dont..

    Trying to apply some GPP's to Win7 machines and not having any luck.

    All my GPO's apply without any issues so i'm stumped. Is it a permissions issue. The majority of what i want to apply are reg edits like the wallpaper, trying to hide/remove some of the Win7 rubbish the users don't need. I've also tried testing by copying a file from a network share on to C: and that hasn't worked either.

    Any thoughts?

    it might be a permissions issue with regards to the driver - if you try and manually add the printer does it prompt for admin auth?

    No printers..(though that has happened a couple of times).

    Its reg edits for things like this Windows 7 Gotchas/Tips/FYI and telling it to hide certain folders..

    In that group policy log I pointed you at in t'other thread - do you have any 4016 & 5016 events listed? Those are (respectively) the start of a GPP being processed and the completion of GPP processing. You get a pair of each for files, folders, drive maps, printers... etc. - it groups all GPPs from GPOs into one processing (so if you have two GPOs that each specify a GPP file, they get processed at the same time as a single pair of 4016/5016 events)

    Right, there are lots of 4016 & 5016's. Plus, I can find my the GPO's containing my GPP's. So, its picking them up but just not applying anything...

    I've got myself confused....

    (happy bday @kmount!)

    For your reference (if you still have XP workstations), you need the GPP Client Side Extensions installed. Windows Vista and 7 support this out the box and require no update.

    Also - are you applying GPPs via a big single GPO or separate linked GPOs? And are you applying settings on a user or computer basis or both? Can you map drives via GPP as a test?

    Are you copying in the user or machine context? Specifically, if you're trying to copy to the root of C: in the user context, windows will tell you to GTFO due to permissions.

    What happens if you attempt to copy \\server\share\Hedgehog.jpg to c:\windows\temp in the machine context (Computer Configuration)?

    @glennda GPresult lists them in the Applied GPO list.

    For example the wallpaper issue im trying to fix is reg entry, says its GPO applied but when i look at the registry it still has the old settings.
    @Michael remember the proxy reg that i couldn't get to work? This is the same thing.

    This is a win7 machine im trying to get these to work on, not XP. XP machines currently still happy with BGInfo.............or is that the point. Would the reg overwrite BGInfo?

    Regardless, anything im trying to run as a preference doesn't work.

    I will try mapping a drive and @pete i have tried copying a file \\server\staff common\me\test.txt to c:\windows\temp.txt but it doesnt work.

    Is it where im copying it from?

    You know when you start to lose track yourself of the problem....or is that me?

    im kinda at my wits end with this now.

    I created a new OU, created a new virtual machine. Only added the reg edit for changing wallpaper. Still nothing.

    I actually really hate Windows 7 on the network at the moment....

    This might sound strange (in the fact that you would assume if you didn't do this it would apply to everything) but try using the "Item Level Targetting" on the Common Tab to specifically select the computers you want to apply to (if you want to apply to them all, use the Domain Computers standard group (unless you have your own such group). That seemed to make things work where I've had issues before with GPP.
