I want to be able to configure IE 11 group policy settings from my Win 7 client. I have IE 11 installed on this client. The client has been joined to a mixed Windows Server 2003/2008R2 domain. When I open the policy object from my Win 7 client and navigate to "User Configuration"->"Basic Settings"->"Control Panel" and right click on "Internet Settings" I can only see the option to add group policy settings for IE 5, 6, 7, and 8.
I tried downloading the ADMX templates for IE 11 (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb530196.aspx) and installing them in %systemroot%\policyDefinitions on the client but nothing seems to change.
I read in a different thread (Internet Explorer 9 & 10 Group Policy Preferences missing) that I need Windows 8 or Server 2012 to accomplish what I want to do, but this seems strange to me. There are no Windows 8 or Server 2012 machines in my domain, and purchasing/acquiring one is an impossibility right now. Also, as an aside, all my servers have IE 8 installed, including the domain controllers, and upgrading to IE 11 is not possible right now (I don't know if this is an important point or not).
There has to be a way to accomplish what I am try to do. Can anybody lend a hand?
