    Hey all.

    I have installed windows 7 RC Build 7100, And i tryed connecting it to my company domain, After i did this, my Domain user account can not enable aero themes, but the domain administrator can, There are not any group policys Defined on the domain controller. I get in the buttom of my personalize menu a sentence saying

    One or more features has been disabled by the system administrator. :confused:

    But no I AM THE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR..! :p

    Can you guys/girls Help?

    Well not exactly... you are in the administrator's group, not the administrator. That's not the same.

    It may be hard to find but you should be able to get the permission. Sorry I can't tell you where to look.... maybe just set up another account in the administrator's group and see if the new one works?

    I don't know. I never ran server. Aero shouldn't have anything to do with a server.. it's on the local machine.

    Enable Aero upon joining Domain

    In your domain controller
    Administrative tools>Group Policy Management>Default domain policy(left of screen)>under administrative templates(right of screen)>Control panel/display/desktop themes

    open the Group Policy Editor
    - enable Prevent selection of windows and buttons styles
    This has to be enabled in order for domain users to be able to enable aero on win 7

    Lastly, Restart your client connected to the domain. ;)
