Specify application categories for Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel

Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To specify application categories for Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel

  1. Open Group Policy Software Installation.

  2. In the details pane, double-click the managed application for which you want to set categories.

  3. In the properties dialog box for the application, click the Categories tab.

  4. On the Categories tab, do any of the following:

    • To associate an application category that has been defined for your organization with this application, click a category in the Available categories list, and then click Select.

    • To remove a category that is associated with this application, click a category in the Selected categories list, and then click Remove.

Notes

  • To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the Domain Administrators security group, the Enterprise Administrators security group, or the Group Policy Creator Owners security group.

  • To open Group Policy Software Installation, see Related Topics.

  • The categories that you set in this dialog box generally pertain to published applications only, because assigned applications do not appear in Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. The application appears in the selected categories in Add or Remove Programs, which the user can use to install the application.

  • This procedure is not used to create or remove categories, but only to associate applications with existing categories. To manage the categories themselves, see Related Topics.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
