available in the download center here:


New to This Spreadsheet

The Administrative Template spreadsheet contains a new column:

  • Status: A "New" in this column means
    that the setting did not exist prior to Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. It
    does not mean that the setting applies only to Windows Server 2012 and Windows
    8. Refer to the column entitled "supported on" to determine to which
    operating system the policy setting applies.

    WindowsServer2008R2andWindows7GroupPolicySettings.xlsx appears to have an unfinished section on the SECURITY tab.

    Windows 2003 is displayed twice - "Windows 2003?" & "Windows 2003"

  • Good information!

  • Is there any recommendation on importing the Windows 8 Policies into a Windows 2008 R2 Domain? Do I just copy from C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions to SYSVOL? I found a thread where someone tried that, and it didn't work.
