Frankly the most definitive list of CSEs will be on the machine of the most
recent version of Windows you are running, in the registry under
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GPExtensions. 


In terms of which settings are processed by which CSEs, this is not
completely straightforward but, for example, most everything under
Administrative Templates is processed by the Registry CSE and then the rest
of the CSEs are pretty self-explanatory. But I don?t think you will find a
definitive list of which CSE processes every setting.

Subject: [gptalk] Complete list of all available CSEs and their


Hello everybody,


Is there a way to determine which GP setting is processed by which CSE ?


I have found a list of default Client-Side Extensions on Technet:



However, I?d like to see a complete list, just like the "Group Policy
Settings Reference" on windows.com/downloads, with a column that says which
CSE is responsible for processing which setting.


For example: if we use the DFS.admx to change the DFS network policy. Is
there a DFS CSE that processes this policy, or is it processed by one of the
default CSEs? Does it require an extension at all? Maybe the CSE list on the
link above is quite complete, and all other settings are processed by the
Group Policy Engine itself?


Is there such list around somewhere? (that links every possible GP setting
to the GP Engine or CSE component that processes this setting)


Many thanks in advance,
