Hi Darren,

Nice post.

Having read your reference to deploying GPP via WSUS I thought I'd add
that WSUS does not recognise XP SP3 clients for the CSE deployment yet.
So the better workaround is probably your second suggestion, of
installing IE7 on XP SP2.

Also, keep in mind that there are certain scenarios where you don't need
to
deploy XMLLite prior to installing the GPP extensions. See my blog post
on
this:

I tried EZ GPO in one of virtaul test domains and I had problems with
the
client. I'm now working on standing up a single Vista SP1 RSAT server. 

You still have to deploy the GPP Client Side Extenstions and XMLLite for
XP
to understand GPP.

It just seams cleaner doing it this way.
