Using Microsoft Group Policy

As an administrator, you can limit users' ability to modify their workspace or session documents by setting permissions from the Microsoft Group Policy Management Console using group policy templates.

Note: To use this feature, you must be running Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP1, or Windows Server 2003 R2 or later on an administrative machine. For more information about managing group policy, see Managing Group Policy ADMX Files Step-by-Step Guide.

Reflection installs a set of group policy templates (ADM and ADMX files) to the following directory:

\Program Files\Attachmate\Reflection\Configuration\GroupPolicy

ADMX files

ADMX files are divided into language-neutral files (.admx) and language-specific resource files (.adml), available to all Group Policy administrators. These factors allow Group Policy tools to adjust their UI according to the administrator's configured language. (In Reflection 2014 Release 2, only US English files are included.)

Reflection setup.exe installs ADMX files to:

...\install_dir\Configuration\GroupPolicy\ADMX

It installs ADML files to the following directory:

...\install_dir\Configuration\GroupPolicy\ADMX\en-us

Reflection provides the following ADMX Group Policy files. Each of these files has a corresponding ADML language file.
