I have two Windows 7 Professional desktops. One has a set of local (no Domain Controller) group policy objects imposing restrictions on what programs can be run from that system. I need to copy all those GPOs to another local Windows 7 Pro machine. Is there any way to automate it?

I am going to copy the answer from the source in case it gets deleted or closed:

1.) Open %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy\ Within this folder, there are two folders - “machine” and “user”. Copy these to folders to the “%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy - folder on the target machine. Restart the machine or run GPUPDATE /force

Note :- %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy is a hidden folder. You need to set an option to view hidden folder in explorer.

2) Use Security Configuration Tool Refer following link..

%systemroot%\windows\system32\grouppolicy, not %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy – user500470 Sep 22 '15 at 17:06
