    Group Policy Editor not working after Vers 2004 updates.

    Hi All.

    Would appreciate knowing if any others have been affected after running the two most recent updates for Win 10 2004.

    I did a clean install of Win 10 Vers 2004. After which Group Editor Policy worked fine and was accessible. However after applying updates KB4557957 or KB4567523 my Group Policy Editor reports the following error on trying to open it. Please see attached image.

    "An appropriate resource file could not be found for file C:\Windows\Policy Definitions\appv.admx (error=2) The system cannot find file specified"

    This has affected all my machines and an uninstall of the update does not resolve the issue.

    Would like to know if others have experienced a similar issue and if anyone might know what the problem is and if their is a way that I could resolve it would be appreciated.

    Many thanks DaveGroup Policy Editor not working after Vers 2004 updates.-capture.png

    Make sure you have administrator privleges and run the following command as administrator

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    Guys thank you so much for your willingness to try and help, I have subsequently discovered the issue was related to the type of installation file used for the clean install rather than a update issue in itself.

    The file was one that had the other operating systems not needed for install removed. It is my understanding that some other files related to language or also removed. Using a freshly download copy of windows 10 resolved the issue.

    Lesson learnt hopefully. Many thanks
