Group Policy Client Side Extension List


So I was on a customer site, troubleshooting a Group policy Client Side extension issue and could not quite figure out all of the Client side extensions that were in use just by GUID.  I was reviewing the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GPExtensions and there were loads of extensions that was unsure about what they were.  Some had no information about them held in the registry (As far as I could see anyway 🙂  ) 

So I said to myself, Mark (which is indeed my name 😉 wouldnt it be nice to have a list of as many GPO extensions as possible, so that if I run into this situation again, I can resolve all the GPO CSE extensions using a quick reference list.  So as I searched the internet, there does not seem to be a list of all Client Side extensions and their functions (There are a few scattered across MSDN or Microsoft.com or Technet).  So, here we go with mine.. I will update this list as I go along. Feel free to tell me any more that you want to add to this list, or indeed, correct my list 🙂

  12. Luke Doddrell says:

    Is there a chance anyone knows of a compiled list of what GPO settings fire which DLL? If for example I were to build GPOs per-CSE then I would love to have a list rather than trial and error (don’t want this to spiral into why etc, but rather simply…
    is there such a list?)

  13. Gaganpreet says:

    Are these GUIDs specific to a particular OS or the CSE?
