Capturing and Controlling Windows 7 Settings

Post  Mindwipe on Sat Mar 08, 2014 5:49 pm

PolicyPak comes with a few preconfigured paks for things like controlling mouse settings or the start menu and taskbar. Is it possible to use it for things like the mmc? I have not had much luck so far.

I've been trying to hide drives just using group policy so far and success has been hit or miss. I was attempting to use the design studio and Policypak to affect this change through the mmc and local policy objects. No luck so far.

So, PPAM isn't meant to hide drives. We manage applications.
And the PPAM Design Studio does its best work when application have Tools | Options or Edit | Preferences types of pages.

So, I'm not preceisely sure what you're trying to do; but if it's not something in that ballpark, PPAM and the DS isn't going to be the best choice.

The Control Panel applets are basically mini-applications which *ACT* like Tools | Options, so PPAM works great with those.

Final thought: Since PPAM cannot (and isn't trying) to hide drive letters using GPOs, try this KB on for size: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/231289
