  • Software Restriction Policy and Windows 2000 Pro

    I have a policy that blocks the default windows games from being launched.

    Works great in XP but does not work at all on Windows 2000 machines. I did change the directory path to match where the games are launched in Windows 2000.

    Do Software Restriction Policies work on 2000 machines?

    EDIT - I use Path rules. And I'm blocking the shortcuts in the start menu.

    Ugh! Sorry guys.

    Just needed to alter my google search a bit and I found just what I was looking for.

    Usually I'm halfway through writing a post and I find what I'm looking for and don't post at all. Or in the process of typing the problem out I see something I didn't before and answer my own question.

    Confirmed my suspicions. Software Restriction Policies apparently do not work on 2000 machines, they were a new feature with XP and 2003.

    Not sure if there is a way to get a 2000 machine to recognize Software Restriction Policies, if there is and I find it I'll be sure to post it here.
