We have a mix of client computers using IE 6 and IE 7.  I need to update our Default Domain Policy to enable some of the ActiveX feature new to IE 7.  I installed the IE 7.0 admin pack on our domain controller and thought that would add the 70. group policy entries specific to IE 7 into the group policy list  but it did not.  Can anyone assist with instructions on how I can get the new IE 7 entries to display in my current Default Domain Policy?

I downloaded + installed that IE 7.0 admin pack on my DC and I still do not see the updated IE 7.0 entries in my existing Default Domain Policy.  If I create a new test GP on the DC I do see the new entires.

Besides following the link provided by 'lscapa' I also had to upgrade both of my DC's before I could see the entries added by the IE 7.0 ADM pack.

Upgrade the DC's to IE7.0 from 6.0.  That was an important piece to leave out.
