    Question

  • Hi,

    I have downloaded and applied the windows 10 admx files, applied them, and i still cannot see windows 10 within the Group Policy Preference Targeting Editor for Operating System 

    See below. Am i Missing something? Or is this a bug or non release item from Msoft?

  • It's true that ADMX templates are not related to group policy preferences. Not all settings are encapsulated in the .admx files. Some of the GUI elements are hardcore in the DLLs.
     
    The GPMC for Windows Server 2012 are not meant to manage newer OSes (Microsoft’s Server 2012 is based on the same code as Windows 8), you should be able to see Windows 10 in the Product list of Group Policy Preference Targeting Editor on a Windows 10 machine or the upcoming new Windows server.

    Do this on a W10 machine... Or simply switch to "WMI filter -
    Win32_OperatingSystem". Works always :)
