Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 10 April 2018 Update (1803) - missing a file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded the new admx/adml files for the 1803 build and SearchOCR.admx appears to be missing.  There is a new version of SearchOCR.adml so if you simply copy all the files in this download to the central store you will wind up getting an error when you go to edit GPO's.  You will have a newer version of SearchOCR.adml without the corresponding newer version of SearchOCR.admx.  It's easy enough to fix the error by restoring the old version of SearchOCR.adml to the EN-us sub folder but I am guessing there are some missing GPO settings without the new SearchOCR.admx file.

  • Yes, your discovery is right and valuable, the workaround that using old SearchOCR.adml as a substitute is also good. I have submit this situation to Microsoft via our channel, let’s wait for update.

    For now, you can try this method, come from a forum user named Chase Roth:

    I manually edited the "...\en-US\searchocr.amdl" file and added the value from the previous version.  Search for these lines about line 25 (if you are not wrapping lines):

          <string id="OCR">OCR</string>

          <string id="OCREveryPage">Force TIFF IFilter to perform OCR for every page in a TIFF document</string>

    then add the line given below between them: 

          <string id="OCR">OCR</string>

          <string id="Win7Only">Microsoft Windows 7 or later</string>

          <string id="OCREveryPage">Force TIFF IFilter to perform OCR for every page in a TIFF document</string>

    ...and no more errors!  I am no expert so I don't know if this could cause any issue , but I don't think so as it is just to localize the variables into the language of choice.
