GPO with admx file

4 posts in this topic

I trying to create an gpo that remove offline files in windows 7.

Where do I find the admx files on the local computer that creates the gpo?

Usually, the import ADMX function is designed to use packs not available on the OS. Here is one example:

Thanks.

I installed the templates. The adml files are now located under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Group Policy\win72008r2\PolicyDefinitions\en-us.

If I try to open the templates in Group Policy Management Editor it can't find the file types in the folder above.

Any ideas?

From the instructions on that page:

To ensure that the new ADMX and ADML files are propagated throughout the domain, on the computer on which you downloaded the new ADMX and ADML files, copy the new PolicyDefinitions directory to the appropriate location under SYSVOL on the appropriate domain controller. Doing so will ensure that all language-specific subdirectories are also copied to SYSVOL.

They apparently do not get installed by default in the place that the DC can use them natively. They need to be moved to the correct location. See how to create and populate the Central Store.
