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.

I got a response back from the product team that they are aware of the
issue but do not have an ETA on the fix. If they don't know that
probably means its down in a queue somewhere waiting for resources.
Sorry that wasn't more helpful.

I will check with the product team on this. I have not come across this
but in looking at the error code, that is an "Access Denied" error.
Something doesn't have permissions somewhere. That doesn't help much J. 


In terms of using Standard GP, I suspect this stuff is just held in the
registry, but haven't investigated how/where. You may be able to use GP
Preferences Registry extension to work around this.

Hi all,


I tried to set up a GPO to deploy an ODBC link using the
'Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Data Sources' setting.


It failed with the following error in the Application log:


"The computer 'Dimensions' preference item in the 'Install:Dimensions
{A2376B80-4591-4E8A-BF0D-0F5EAA0B92E4}' Group Policy object did not
apply because it failed with error code '0x80004005 Unspecified error'
This error was suppressed."


Having done a bit of searching it appears to be a bug as described at
the following link:




Has anyone successfully done this (and therefore it isn't a bug)?


Darren - have you got any insight into this and/or a predicted solution


Is it possible to do this using standard group policy?


Many thanks
