I am pretty sure they mean this:
Group Policy Management Console
Group Policy Management Console with Service Pack 1
Assuming they have Windows XP or Windows 2003 they are installing this on.
Actually - reading a bit more into what they have stated, I think they have
Windows XP SP1 - not SP2. Hopefully this is Windows XP Professional as
well, as it definitely would be worthless in Home. Anyway - if you read the
second page above, it has this:
"When installing the GPMC on Windows XP Professional with SP1, GPMC Setup
prompts you to install Windows XP QFE Q326469 if it is not already present.
This QFE updates your version of gpedit.dll to version 5.1.2600.1186, which
is required by GPMC. This QFE will be made available in Windows XP Service
Which is what makes me think they have Windows XP Professional with SP1 and
may want to consider installing SP2. However, not having enough
information, really - I am just guesing.
