You can hack this after a fashion, but it requires some real tweaking.
Namely, depending upon what policy you want to control, you can use file
permissions on the underlying GP settings storage in the local GPO to
control who gets it. For example, if you want to control Admin Template
policy on the local GPO, you can permission the registry.pol file within
either C:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\machine or
C:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user so that it can only be read by the user
account that you want to apply the policies to. It?s a serious hack, but it
has been done successfully in the past.

Well, only a local GPO would work but I don?t think there is any way to use
security filtering at the local level; therefore, your GPO is going to apply
to all local users, and potentially some domain users as well.


And because a local user account does not process domain-based GPOs, I think
you?re unfortunately out of luck.

Hello everyone.


I need to create a program that creates a local user in windows XP and
associates it a specific GPO created by me to the user the program created
only. The other local users must not be affected by the GPO. How can I do
this? I am searching for a solution but nothing up to now.


I´m ok with the program, my problem is how to associate a custom GPO to a
specific local windows xp user without affect the others local users.


Can someone help me on this?


Thanks in advance.
