I have a domain with Windows Server 2008 Domain Controller.
I have created a logon vbscript file to install printers and I applied this file by a Logon Script GPO.
The GPO was applied successfully on Windows Vista and printers were installed successfully, but the PROBLEM is that users who use Windows XP still receiving an error message saying:
"Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy, open event viewer or contact your system administrator"
Code: 800704EC

Any help is highly appreciated.

Check out this Policy
User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Printers
and disable "Point and Print Restrictions"

That policy is already disabled and configured correctly. As I mentioned above, I do not hava any problem with Vista after disabling the policy, but XP still having the same problem.

How have to setup your software restriction policy in GPO?Does all the XP machine have this problem or only a few?
You may want to do a RSOP on the XP to see how the restriction is kicking in. (whether its a local computer policy setting or otherwise, etc)

this link may also help to rule out the possibility of having it blocked unintentionally via GPO. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457006.aspx
