Hello, I'm having a small problem, and I can't seem to find an answer for it:
I was trying to do an Item Level Targeting GPP, and I found that that Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 do not show up as Operating System Targets in the GPP Item Level Targeting.

GPP Item Level Targeting
I'm wondering if there is a trick to get those to show up?
I checked all the ADMX, and as far as I can tell they're all the latest.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

For the record, my AD is 2003 R2 Native, and am running RSAT from a Windows 7 workstation.

Thanks,

You will have to change that setting from a win8 or 2012 machine. Not all settings are encapsulated in admx files. Some of the GUI elements (drop down lists and radio buttons in particular) are hardcore in the DLLs. The RSAT tools for win7 are not meant to manage newer OSes and are missing several features. That is just one of them.
