 [L.P.H. van Belle] Dont know, still win7 here, i did a short test with win10, and i didnt had any problems managing this from a win7 pc.

[L.P.H. van Belle] yes, and be sure to make good backups of that folder.

[L.P.H. van Belle] Nope, once you have win7 and add the win10 int the PolicyDefinitions you can use that also on win7.

[L.P.H. van Belle] There where and maybe there still are a few problems with the policies, but i think windows had this fixed no. 
If not, google the error message, solution is on the MS site, few small changes.

[L.P.H. van Belle] can answere this one, no win10 rsat tested.
