XP HOME local security

xp HOME edition does not have local security policy setting(gpedit.msc), here is a solution:
1、Copy files from XP Pro (in “C:\WINDOWS\system32”) gpedit.msc、fde.dll、gpedit.dll、 gptext.dll、wsecedit.dll to HOME “C:\WINDOWS\system32”
2、Start->run: run following command “regsvr32 fde.dll”、“regsvr32 gpedit.dll”、“regsvr32 gptext.dll”、“regsvr32 wsecedit.dll”
3、Copy all the *.adm files in XP Pro “C:\WINDOWS\INF” to HOME edition in “C:\WINDOWS\INF”
4、Last step, run “gpedit.msc”, you will see the security policy console
