editing ADMX file

    Question

  • Hi,

    I need to edit ADMX, in other words to see all the Settings of ADMX.

    The reason:

    I replaced old ADMX with newer version. There are some problems that I suspect could be related to the replacement.

    I think that some of the settings were suppressed in a new ADMX beside that new are available now.

    I may be mistaken because most of the people confirmed that new admx never caused the problem.

    But just to be sure I would like to compare both.

    So, can we see the content of admx without using GPMC?

  • Hi,
    As far as I know, ADMX files are structured the same as XML files and so you can follow the same open/edit rules. In other words, any text editor, like Notepad in Windows will open ADMX files for viewing and editing.
    And Microsoft's ADMX Migrator tool is a free add-on to the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) that provides a GUI to edit ADMX files instead of you having to use a text editor. Here is the link to download this tool: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15058&tduid=(1525bd21c1a39b08ae310a592dd9a3c1)(256380)(2459594)(TnL5HPStwNw-ZxIaFfOanGm7FgQLcvnPiw)()
