    If you mean the command line option "-reg4gp" then I doubt it. It looks more like "use registry to interact with policies instead of Win API".

    This program is very nice and simple, it even works for me on Windows 8.1

    Just something to note for people that use bing as their homepage or to search, WPD creates some firewall rules that blocks bing from being able to be accessed, you can delete the third party firewall rules from within advanced firewall settings and bing will then function again.... if you keep telemetry ip and update ip rules active bing works, it's just the third party rules.

    I've got the firewall rules set without changing anything and bing.com works fine here

    EDIT - Ah, I only set the first "Spy" ones, not the rest

    For the firewall rules you just click the option you want in the firewall section and it applies the new ones, if the app itself gets updated it tells you in the app but redirects you to the site to DL the new version

    Just a FYI, if you use Office 365 and block additional stuff in firewall rules (OneDrive etc.), Office will lose its license.

    (Unblock to reactivate, seems Office can't connect to license server when extra stuff is blocked).

    I was experimenting with a few services, like CDPUserSvc_3ab1a, OneSyncSvc_3ab1a, UnistoreSvc_3ab1a and UserDataSvc_3ab1a in 1809.
    Now in 1903 you can't alter than in service manager, probably reg edit is needed but I see these listed in the new version of WPD 1.3 under services at the bottom.
    Too bad I use the MS mail.app many of these are affected.
