gpedit.msc - "Resource '$(string.RequirePrivateStoreOnly)' referenced in attribute displayName could not be found."

    Question

  • At some point after installing the last two Windows 10 builds (KB3147458 and KB3140741), I started getting the error message "Resource '$(string.RequirePrivateStoreOnly)' referenced in attribute displayName could not be found." when opening the group policy editor.  It points to WindowsStore.admx, line 140, column 9.

    The referenced string does not exist in ...\EN-US\WindowsStore.adml.  With this being the case, what exactly should I infer?  Did Microsoft remove this particular policy and forget to remove the policy block referencing it in WindowsStore.admx?  Is it safe to remove this block manually, or will that compromise SFC and/or component store integrity?

    Thanks

  • Same here. I instead added the necessary entries to the string table (in WindowsStore.adml) and that suppressed the error message, and brought back the "Store" category under Windows Components.

    Removing the RequirePrivateStoreOnly block from the ADM might work as well. In both cases, this changes the file integrity, and I guess running SFC will replace the modified file(s) anyway.

    Or may be it's the other way around? WindowsStore.admx seems to have last modified on 3/24/2016, whereas WindowsStore.adml shows the last modified time stamp as 10/30/2015...
