The old Windows XP GPO template had three options for "Windows Installer\Prohibit user installs":

  1. Allow user installs

  2. Hide user installs

  3. Prohibit user installs

The new Windows 7 template has only the first two options.

Is this an error or the third option "Prohibit user installs" has been abolished on Windows 7?

Thank you

No, I am looking for preventing per-user MSI installs. – tt567 Oct 10 '12 at 13:45
