    I have Windows 8.1. Apparently, it's missing 'gpedit.msc'. The Windows 8 Pro Pack is no longer available from MS, which is what I need to get this function. I think I may be able to enable 'gpedit.msc' through the Registry, but I'm not sure where to look for that. My end goal is to disable the lockscreen from the Start Up process. Does anyone have a link to the Pro Pack, or any other ideas on disabling the lockscreen? Thanks.

    Update: as it usually goes, I found the solution 5 minutes after I posted!

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization]
    "NoLockScreen"=dword:00000001
