Inetres.adm file re-name for upgrade from IE7 to IE8

Basic question (I hope...)

I am preping to upgrade my Domain from IE7 to IE8 in an XP environment. I want to apply the new IE8 Group policies without eliminating the IE7 policies in the process.

With both the IE7 & 8 ADM files having the same name, I thought I would rename the IE8 ADM file to something like IE8.adm. This way, all the old policies would still be in effect while I was upgrading to the new platform.

Is there a problem in changing the name of this file?

Thanks in advance

    Accepted Solution

    There isn't a problem changing the name of the file, the only thing is that you have to load the file when config a GPO to use one or another file, maybe the rename file would not be shown by default, but you can rename it without any problem.
