Windows 7 Aero Slideshow Group Policy
Hello. I have added a few Windows 7 PC's to our Server 2003 domain and with a bit of loop back processing I'm able to get them working together with XP and roaming profiles quite well.
Only thing I can't do is set the theme in group policy for the windows 7 PC's. I want to set the msstyle theme of the landscape slideshow which comes with the Windows 7 PC's. Is this not possible?
I tried to use gpedit on the local machine and force it but it doesn't seem to work.

not sure but toy edit win7 only policies install rsat on a win7 pc then you dont need an 08 server. Try that and have a poke round the options

Sted's got it bang on. To edit the additional Windows 7 policies you need to use RSAT on a W7 client. However, you need to copy the policies, either from a W7 client or by downloading them from MS, to the policy store in the sysvol share on one of your DCs.
