    Installing gpedit.msc correctly

    If you have 32-bit Windows (x86) then the setup should install smoothly without any problems and you should be able to access the Group Policy Editor through the Microsoft Management Console by going to Run –> gpedit.msc. But if you have 64-bit Windows (x64) then you will need some extra steps after running the installer. Follow the steps below after running the installer:

    1. Go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder
    2. Copy the following folders and files to C:\Windows\System32
      “GroupPolicy“, “GroupPolicyUsers” and gpedit.msc.
    3. There is another file to use if you get "MMC could not create the snapin" error but i will post the link for the page with everything on it just in case.

    IF DONT WORK, TRY THIS:

    NOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    >>>> AFTER CHANGE “if x86 and x64 bat files run but “MMC could not create the snap-in” continue then :
    edit batch file and replace “%username%” TO “%userdomain%\%username%””

    >>>>MAKE SURE GPEDIT.MSC;X86 OUR X64BATCH AND ALL OTHERS IS >>>ALLOW TO ALL USERS(YOU,ADM,AND ALL)
    >>>> RUN CMD AS ADM
    SEARCH THE LOCAL OF THE X86 OUR X64BAT AND RUN IT!!!!!!

    BUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMP!!!

    Installing gpedit.msc correctly in Windows 10 x64 Home - SOLVED


    Perfect solution.
    This is the first solution that I have found that really works 100% for Windows 10 Home 64bit.
    If running Windows 10 x64, just make sure you copy 2 folders and 1 file to your Windows 32 folder as per instructions.
    Instructions are very clear.
    Thank you so much.

    My gpedit.msc is missing too. I do find it in the WinSXS directory with a version 10.0.10586. Can I copy it into the SysWOW64 and C:\windows\system32 folders and run it? I am running a 64 bit machine on Win10 Home 1511 ver 10.0.10586.318

    Or would it be better to download from How To Enable Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) In Windows 10 Home Edition

    Sorry about the [almost] duplicate post.

    I've just installed gpedit.msc and copied the GroupPolicy, groupPolicyUsers and gpedit.msc to C:\Windows\System32 as described. I can open the editor and edit the settings, but that doesn't seem to make any difference. I tried setting the "Confgure Automatic Updates" to allow me to defer the updates, but I still only have the "Automatic" and "Notify to schedule restart" options.

    Am I doing something wrong?
