Win '98 Policy Issue

By csackett ·
Running '98 on an NT 4.0 network. A group of machines are locked out of control panel, run, settings, etc. Can't get to run or control panel in safemode. I may have created my poledit disk wrong. I can create a shortcut to a:poledit, but cannot access the disk. I get a path error c:\windows\...\common.adm or something like that. Thanks for your help

Win '98 Policy Issue

by vh_s In reply to Win '98 Policy Issue

First, delete your policy file in the NT NETLOGON directory.

Get a blank disk. Insert your win98 source disk into your cd-rom. Copy these files into the disk: poledit.exe and *.adm.

Use this disk to enable RUN or Control Panel in certain computer, by doing this:
copy *.adm to C:\WINDOWS\INF
select Open Registry
unmark the feature you had disabled prev.

Hope that help.
