vista sp2 group policy extensions

Its been a few weeks since Vista SP2 was released to to MSDN and MS Technet subscribers. The original release lacked the group policy extensions for windows domain environments and sent me and many others off on a frustration spiral for a few hours until we could figure that out.

So, nearly four weeks later with my Lenovo T400 running Vista x64 SP2, I was finally able to apply the full group policy extensions and now my drive maps are fully functional.

In case you have Windows Update disabled, simply go here to, select the appropriate operating system and download the latest Group Policy extensions for your computer. Administrators with WSUS, don’t forget to approve and force the update!

Thank you Microsoft, for taking your time. Perhaps you’ll release another version of the Sp2 disc which includes this patch so I don’t have to slipstream it myself.
