Proxy GPO for IE10 from Server 2008 not working


We have a GPO on our DC (server 2008) that sets a default home page and proxy settings for all users.

This GPO is not being applied to any workstations that are running IE10.

I've read that this is because the settings are not compatible but I can't find out what options in the GPO i need to change.  It seems to be a setting under user preferences but the IE10 option isn't listed, only up to IE8

What do I need to do to get this GPO to work with IE10.

All our workstations run either Win XP or Win 7, with a mixture of IE8/9/10

Would I need to create separate GPO's for IE10 and another for anything below this, or would a single GPO be able to configure the proxy for all?

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the link but it just confused me even more

It takes you to a download page for the templates, but under install instructions it says you go to another link for server 2008 with different install instructions

That link then downloads about 219 different templates.  I've no idea which template it is or how to install it

You also haven't fully answered my question
Since IE10 requires a different Template you will need to set a separate GPO.

I'll have a look at the link I've provided and report back in a few minutes.

I followed the link and I get a page with:
I've selected Download and the browser asked me to save an ADM file. That's all.

Now, all you have to do is add this Template (the downloaded ADM file) to your GPO (and set it accordingly).
Save those ADM folder in Windows\Sysvol\Policies. Then open GPMC and create new GP and configure them.

Thanks, this did work in the end

We also realised that we could configure the GPO using any Server 2012 or Windows 8.

I created a VM of both and it works also
