Apply group policy to Windows 10 machines (incompatible group policy??)

    Question

  • Hi everyone,

    i'm a student doing summer job and trying to apply group policy on windows 10 enterprise machines!

    My job is to disable OneDrive and windows Store.

    I've installed the latest .admx from microsoft for Windows Servers 2012 and Windows 8.1!

    Problem:

    Disabling the Windows Store is not the problem, but disabling OneDrive is not possible....it seems to me like the group policy from windows servers 2012 r2 (updated with latest .admx files from Microsoft) is simply not compatible with group policy of Windows 10.

    Can someone confirm this?

    My solution was that i copied the group policy .admx and .adml files from Windows 10 and pasted/owerwritten the files in C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\<domain_name>\Policies\PolicyDefinitions

    There are NO official GP updates from Microsoft for Windows Server 2012 R2 that are applicable to Windows 10 computers!

    We need to "make" our own!

    No - and the same was true for older versions.
     
    The ADMX files on 8.1 are different from those on 2012R2, the admx files
    on 2008R2 are different from those on Win7.
     
    Since ADMX was introduced, it was always neccesary to grab the newest
    copy of each ADMX file on all OS versions of interest and merge them
    into the Central store.
