    Software Restrictions

    I was testing out Software Restrictions a couple of weeks ago. Setting up one for Windows Movie Maker. Well today pupils have logged on and it is saying unable to run Windows Movie Maker due to software restrictions.

    I have deleted all software restriction on the group policy and checked the group policy for the object Windows Movie Maker and it is "not configured" for both user configuration and computer configuration,.

    Any ideas

    You might have to allow it first as it may have kept the setting. PITA I know but happens with allsorts of settings.

    Re: Software Restrictions

    I put the Group Policy object to disabled even though it said Not configured (SAME THING). I replaced it with Disabled refreshed it logged onto the workstation and it worked.

    Re: Software Restrictions

    'Not Configured' is not the same as disabled.
    What Not Configured means is that it won't alter the item's current setting. So, if you set it from Not Configured to Enabled, then set it back to Not Configured, the item's value will still be set to Enabled

    Re: Software Restrictions

    Actually, it depends on what you're setting. If you're setting a fully managed item then setting it to "not configured" will make the machine/user setting go back to what it was before.

    When you're setting group policy items you can choose to hide the items which are not managed in the menu. The non-managed items simply stamp values in the registry; the managed items write a value to the corresponding policies bit of the registry. Setting a value back to not-configured should cleanly remove that setting.
