Windows 10: On updated to 1511 machines gpedit.msc reports namespace conflict
If you go to this link
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.
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
takeown /f LocationProviderAdm.admx
icacls LocationProviderAdm.admx /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F)
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%"
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.
Click the link I posted and read on from there - I've not been able to get my laptop updated
the bat does change the files inside c:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\
- 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
inside the c:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\ there is the language folder and Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml , how can i rename to LocationProviderADM.adml ?
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.
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.
takeown /f LocationProviderAdm.adml
icacls LocationProviderAdm.adml /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F)
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%"
I did that and had to restore it back from the ISO
seems that inside the folder
there is no need of special permission , i run total commander as administrator and i delete and rename the file inside the folder C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\en-US
did you noticed ?
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?
Hi Guys I have just got windows 10 and I am trying to activate the action centre but it seems I don't have gpedit.msc
, I upgraded from 8.1 .
Can someone help me with this please.
hi, sorry if this is in the wrong section, anyways when i open gpedit it says "MMC could not create the snap-in"
I've googled etc but only fixes i can see are for older windows versions, tried one or two things just in case and nothing worked....
Hi, is there a way I can disable the registry access and GPEdit.msc on the standard account?
Since I've downloaded Windows 10 my Ethernet (wired), connection has been absolutely useless. I'm 100% positive it's not the cable itself, and I've tried lots of things to resolve it. Nothing seems to work. So for the time being I've been using...
It seems my Windows Defender disabled for forever, I tried to turn it on back but it said something like turned off using Group Policy, so I run gpedit.msc then I search Windows Defender under Administrative Templates but there's no Windows Defender...
