Try copying the script into notepad and saving it as a .ADM file - not where you saved it;
Open group policy editor, select the policy you want to attach it to (not the default policy - if necessary, create a new blank policy), and in user administrative templates, right-click and import the file you saved as a .ADM

titn, the group targeting can be achieved by using the register "common" and checking item level targeting" and picking the security group "abcusers".
Mapping a drive is not really your problem, or is it? GPP calls it "drive maps" and it's below Preferences - windows settings. To achieve the if exist network drive thing, again use item level targeting ->registry item ->match value data->HKCU, keypath: network\g, value name:RemotePath, value type: reg_sz, value data \\server\share
