How to assign Software Packages to users in Group Policy Management Editor

This article explains how to assign a software package to users through Group Policy Management Editor. For our example, we want to assign Office 2010 to the HR Group Policy Object (GPO).


Navigate to Start – Administrative Tools – Group Policy Management.


Group Policy Management opens. Right click relevant GPO (in our case, HR GPO) and click ‘Edit’.


Group Policy Management Editor opens. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Policies\Software Settings. Right click Software installation and select New – Package from the drop down list.


The Open dialog box appears. Navigate to and select the required package. You then open the package and specify that you want to assign it. Select Open.


In the Deploy Software dialog box, select the Assigned radio button. Click OK.


The Microsoft Office 2010 software package has now been assigned to the HR GPO.
