Registry pol not updating
The format of registry policy files is a documented, binary file format, normally produced by Group Policy editors such as Gp
However, there aren’t any good viewers or editors for directly manipulating those files.
If this option is not specified, error information is displayed in a message box dialog. This utility is not a console app, so you won’t see a console window appear, and if you start it from a CMD prompt, it will run in the background – CMD won’t wait for it to complete.
You can check in Task Mgr to see when it completes.
The main shortcoming had to do with when a value or set of registry policy values were to be deleted: if the settings were present when Set_FDCC_LGPO or Apply_LGPO_Delta was run, they would be deleted, but those deletion “commands” were not saved in the policy store.
So, if the settings were to be reintroduced, gpupdate from local policy would not remove them.
The source code for all of them is attached to a separate post.
Administrators frequently apply policies by copying files into the Group Policy folders.For this reason, the Apply_LGPO_Delta utility uses a custom, Notepad-editable text file format to define specific changes to apply to local group policy.The log file format produced by Import Reg Pol is compatible with Apply_LGPO_Delta v2.0.The new implementations insert the deletion “commands” into the policy store so that they can be applied whenever policy refreshes.This required extending the input file syntax for Apply_LGPO_Delta and the log file output for Set_FDCC_LGPO, both of which have been bumped to v2.0.
