Group Policy Management Editor (GPME) crashes when editing a Group Policy Preferences

    Question


  • When editing a group policy within the Group Policy Management Editor (GPE) and selecting Preferences the Group Policy Management Editor crashes. This happens whether its an old or new policy. Whether the policy is edited on the Domain Controller or on an workstation using the RSAT tools. We have tried different users and different Domain Controllers.


    This only happens when editing preferences, you can edit policies with no issues. Anyone got any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I would suggest you get new updates install and make sure have only one MMC open.

    Also try to open an elevated command prompt and run sfc /scannow. sfc /scannow is used to repair/fix any corrupted or missing windows system files.

    Please check if there is any related errors in Event Viewer.

    Best Regards,
