How can I install the Policy Editor on a Workstation?

A. A. The Policy editor is POLEDIT.EXE and a number of .adm files. To install the Policy Editor on a workstation perform the following:

  1. Copy POLEDIT.EXE from the %systemroot% on a Windows NT Server machine to the %systemroot% folder on the Workstation.
  2. Copy common.adm,windows.adm and winnt.adm from %systemroot%/inf on the NT Server to the %systemroot%/inf folder on the workstation

You will now be able to run the Policy Editor on a Windows NT Workstation. You may want to create a shortcut to POLEDIT.EXE in your Administrative Tools folder.
