I'm trying to determine what GPO's are being applied to my Windows 7 machine in a Windows 2003 AD network. However, whenever I bring up a command window and run the GPRESULT command, all I get are error messages. Does gpresult work at all in Windows 7?

It should still work. It is a valid command in Win7 – BBlake Mar 31 '10 at 15:27

It works in the sense that I can start it just fine from the command line; nothing chrashes, no complaints. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. How are you running it, specifically?

I was running it from the command line in Windows 7. It is on a 32-bit version of Windows 7, but I doubt that has anything to do with it. – Rod Apr 11 '10 at 1:13
@Rod correct, it has nothing to do with it. Usually, things tend to break in the 64 bit version, not the other way around. – alex Apr 11 '10 at 6:46

Are you right-clicking and 'Run as Administrator'

Works for me.

Else what error message do you get?
