I think it doesn't exist in Vista Home and Home Premium

Jack.Sparrow is right, gpedit.msc isn't available in Home Basic and Home Premium. You have to manually edit the registry in order to change group policy settings. Microsoft has an Excel spreadsheet that lists all the group policy settings and their respective registry keys, so you can probably find what you're looking to change in there.

Thumbs Up

I have found 'gpedit.msc' in System32 in my Vista Business edition. Don't know why it did not execute when I tried to run it from the command line but, it did when I double clicked on the file.

Thanks for the feedback.

All versions of Vista other than Home Basic and Home Premium can use gpedit.msc, in case anyone was wondering.
