    ADMX Templates for windows 8.1

    Can any one help me with this.

    I have setup a windows 8.1 test computer in order to see if it will be suitable to roll out in school. Currently we are running windows 7 with server 2008r2, I have installed a server 2012 server and enabled group policy. I have installed the windows 8.1 admx templates into the central store, located on Server\windows\sysvol\domain\policies\policy definitions.

    I have copied these files to the c:\windows\policy definition on the 2012 server, but when i go to amend the pupils gpo it is not giving me any of the updated template settings.

    Does anyone know whats going on.

    On a 2008 R2 box, the Policy Definitions folder should be copied to: C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\%DomainName%\Policies

    As far as I know, 2012 should read the updated policies from the same central location. Replication typically takes minutes depending on the size of your AD structure.
