Office 2013 Administrative Templates & GPO

    Question

  • Hey, everyone!

    I’m sure someone here will know what I’m doing wrong, so hopefully it’s something simple.

    This is my first attempt to utilize Office 2013 Administrative Templates in a GPO. I downloaded the templates from Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35554) and extracted them.

    I then created a new GPO so that the policy folder was created in logonserver\sysvol\%userdnsdomain%\policies\Adm. In that folder, I copy the appropriate .admx files and the en-us folder.

    Then, when I go to edit that GPO, I get an error:

    The following error has occurred in \\Hudsonchapel.org\SysVol\Hudsonchapel.org\Policies\<GUID>\Adm\proj15.admx on line 1: Error 51 Unexpected keyword.
    Found <?xml
    Expected: CLASSCATEGORY, [strings]
    The file can not be loaded.

    This occurs for any .admx file I’ve tried.

    I’m not sure what else to try. I’ve followed what I know to do.

    Could someone help me figure out what I’m doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    -Eric

  • Hi Eric,

    >>I then created a new GPO so that the policy folder was created in logonserver\sysvol\%userdnsdomain%\policies\Adm. In that folder

    How is it going? Did we follow the article provided by Zanderol24 to create the Central Store for admx files? The location of central store is: %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions

    Regarding ADMX files, the following article can be referred to for more information.
