In general, GPOs apply fine to either OS - inasmuch as we use the same GPOs for 
both. IE may be a special case as there are actually two different executables 
under 64-bit, one for 32-bit and the standard one. Which is not *much* help J

Sorry to repost but Im assuming there are people out there running 64 bit OS's. 
 How are you using Group Policy to manage these systems.  Do I need new ADM 
files or should existing ADM's work?

Subject: [THIN] Group Policy issue applying to 32 and 64 bit IE Browsers

Im currently running Windows 2003 x64 systems and use both the 32 and 64 bit 
Internet Explorer browser.  I use AD Group Policy to set IE Proxy settings.  
The problem that I have is that the AD GPO does not apply to both IE browsers 
(on the same server).  IE Proxy settings do apply on the 64 bit IE browser but 
nothing is applied to the 32 bit IE browser.

How will AD GPO work in such a scenario.  Im assuming the group Policy setting 
is failing as the 32bit registry path is different on 64 bit OS's.  How can I 
set Proxy settings via Group Policy so they apply to both IE browsers on 64 bit
