    IE11 and inetres.adm

    I am having a blind-spot moment here.

    I administer our Group Polices from my workstation running Windows 7 using the shortcut "Group Policy Management"

    Domain Controllers are running Server 2008 R2.

    I have installed IE11 on a test PC and wish to check out what features I can control centrally so have downloaded the inetres.adm file from Microsoft.

    Do I just copy this adm file to :

    \\DC-NAME\SYSVOL\domainname.local\Policies\PolicyDefini tions ?

    I have it in my mind it should be an admx file though?

    Can anyone clarify please.

    Ta

    I'd imagine that ADM will be for a Windows Server 2003 environment that can't read ADMX but has clients with IE11 installed. Can you not just download IE11 on your Windows 7 device and then copy the inetres.admx from your local %windir%\policydefinitions up to SYSVOL PolicyDefinitions?

    I have installed IE11 on my workstation and it's put:

    inetres.admx

    in the following folders:

    C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions
    &
    C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-inetres-adm_31bf3856ad364e35_11.2.9600.16428_none_d0e66d66 ace1ace5

    I take it you just copied the local ADMX to the SYSVOL store?

    I remember having problems with IE10 when I was doing ours, and there were two files it wanted replacing.

    Code:
    \\DOMAIN\SYSVOL\DOMAIN.internal\Policies\PolicyDefinitions\inetres.admx
    
    and
    
    \\DOMAIN\SYSVOL\DOMAIN.internal\Policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-US\InetRes.adml
    Not sure if it's somethign obvious for some reason, or a weird thing with our GPO cache etc, but yeah wouldn't work without both. (The ADML file wasn't in the AMDX download pack, it's in another one)

    Can't rename them, got to delete. Due to it scanning that folder. Sure I did that too and that was the answer

    Copy it out the folder somewhere else.

    It's stupid isn't it It seems to poll the whole folder for a "Function" rather than looking in the actual filename that it should be using.... Guessing you could effectively name the file bob.admx and bob.adml and it would work as it's just finding it, but oh well lol :P Silly MS!
