    I would prefer to wipe my disk and install 10586 from an ISO, but I haven't found such an ISO.
    If you go to this link

    Windows 10

    from a Windows machine, it will let you download the Media Creation Tool, which will in turn download system image (ISO or USB) for clean install of version 1511.

    If you follow the same link from a non-Windows platform (Android etc.), it will ask which language of Windows you want and then allow you to direct-download the ISO file.

    Indeed, my policy store has both LocationProviderADM.admx and Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx, referring to the same namespace (no .adml files though).

    Files at that location are protected and not immediately deletable and renamable. What would be the proper way of deleting and renaming these files? Restarting into repair console?
    I had no .adml files either. Based on your link in post #1 this fixed the gpedit.msc problem for me keeping correct permissions on the files.

    From elevated command prompt
    Code:
    cd C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions
    takeown /f LocationProviderAdm.admx 
    icacls     LocationProviderAdm.admx /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F)
    del        LocationProviderAdm.admx
    
    takeown /f Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx 
    icacls     Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F)
    ren        Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx LocationProviderAdm.admx
    icacls     LocationProviderAdm.admx /setowner "NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller"
    icacls     LocationProviderAdm.admx /remove "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%"

    BTW, so you don't think I'm being a smart...s, I've not been able to get my laptop updated so there could be a myriad of issues with this new upgrade.

    Peace
    I have nothing but warm sincere feelings for everyone who makes the effort to share information and help others. Would you elaborate on your laptop problem? Does the install fail right away, or afterwards?

    I would try removing all non-critical hardware or disable through the BIOS setup. I would also try alternative sources for the install media (i.e., DVD, Remote install, USB devices, etc.). If you use DVD, verify what formats your laptop's DVD drive can read.

    *.adml files are in the .\lang folder. Pick the one for your favorite written language.

    I would put everything into the driver store. Decide which one is dragged into the GPO, or use a WFI filter to indicate which one is needed for groups of machines.

    You are right. I've updated these also (same method as above). @AndreyT's error was fixed by just renaming .admx oddly enough.

    hi
    about
    • Delete the LocationProviderADM.admx and LocationProviderADM.adml files from the central store.
    • Rename Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx to LocationProviderADM.admx
    • Rename Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml to LocationProviderADM.adml
    the bat does change the files inside c:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\
    inside the c:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\ there is the language folder and Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml , how can i rename to LocationProviderADM.adml ?
    thanks

    Depends on your language. Have a look inside C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions. There will be one (or more) directories depending on your language(s) installed. Assuming it is US English (en-US) you change to that directory and then run the same commands but replacing admx with adml.

    Like this for example.
    Code:
    cd C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\en-US
    takeown /f LocationProviderAdm.adml 
    icacls     LocationProviderAdm.adml /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F)
    del        LocationProviderAdm.adml
    
    takeown /f Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml 
    icacls     Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F)
    ren        Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml LocationProviderAdm.adml
    icacls     LocationProviderAdm.adml /setowner "NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller"
    icacls     LocationProviderAdm.adml /remove "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%"
    Don't run these scripts more than once in the same directory or you'll end up with no LocationProviderAdm as it deletes it first and then renames the Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.

    I did that and had to restore it back from the ISO

    For me it is owned by TrustedInstaller and Administrators group only has read/execute so can't rename. Strange it is different but I've clean installed since doing this fix so I can't recheck it. Perhaps authority is different in 1511 clean install to an upgrade.

    Did you get the problem fixed anyway?
