Help with RDP GPO for Windows 7 computers

We currently have a GPO configured with all the firewall settings and that settings to enable RDP on our Windows XP machines; however, it doesn't work on our new Windows 7 machines.  Can anyone tell me what settings I need to add in the GPO for RDP on the Windows 7 pcs?  Also, do I need to add the admx from the Windows 7 pc to the Global Policy Definitions?  I'm wondering if the old adm file doesn't support Windows 7.

Close, but I want to do dteps 1-8 in a GPO.  We have almost 200 computers that need these settings.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

I have most of this configured with one exception, is there a way with the GPO to add which users can connect to the RPD session?

You manage what users are part of the "Remote Desktop Users" Local Group
And by managing the membership of the Local computer Policy object "Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services"

Thanks for the help.  I had to think my way through this a little, but we got it working using nothing, but GPOs.

Is often the case. GPO's can replace almost any manual task or script nowadays, its a case of sifting through and finding out how.
