If you are a corporate administrator, once you have deployed the package that you created with the Windows® Internet Explorer® Customization Wizard 8, you can use the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) snap-in to view the policy settings that you created. If you make further changes using IEAK Profile Manager, you can also use RSoP to view these changes. For complete instructions for using RSoP, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=68958.

Using the RSoP snap-in is a two-step process. First, you run the Resultant Set of Policy wizard to indicate what information you want to view. Then, you open the items in the console window that contain the settings you want to view.

  2. Click File, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  3. On the Standalone tab, click Add.
