Group Policy : ADM/ADMX files & CSEs

Posted on 2012-08-10

Hello Experts,

I am trying to understand how Group Policy is applied. More specifically, what is inside of ADM files exactly and how do they interact with the CSEs?

I am very confused because I read at some point that in the ADM files you only have the code that triggers the right CSE, is this correct ? and that the triggers are identified with GUIDs ? or is the GUID only used to identify the GPO in sysvol an nowhere else?

Where are the CSEs stored in Windows XP/7 and how are they triggered?

I appreciate any tips!

Thank you !!
