Welcome to the new home for blogs & discussion around the Security Compliance Toolkit (SCT) and the Microsoft Security Baselines. Please bear with @Aaron Margosis and me as we sort through the old content from the SecGuide TechNet blog and get it migrated over to here. This new platform will give us the ability to more easily collaborate with the community. Also, we heard your feedback, be on the lookout for a new DRAFT security baseline (coming very soon) that we have been working on… Office 365 ProPlus!

There is a need for us to extract the LGPO.exe from the toolkit and deploy it into our customer standalone workstations along with our scripts that will automate policy changes on the customer workstations. Is there a licensing or terms of use that will prohibit copying the LGPO.exe.

PS: The windows running on the customer workstations are licensed to us.  

@Thiruvc inside the LGPO folder you will find the "Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit - Standalone Use Terms.pdf" which defines how the tool can be used.
