.ADM not importing to GP correctly

I don't know what I'm messing up here... from every resource I've looked at, this looks correct.

It's not a matter of it even functioning... I just can't import this .adm into the group policy as an Administrative Template.  If someone could look this over and see if they can figure what I'm missing it... let me know.

    POLICY !!IE7_RunOnceHasShown    
       EXPLAIN !!IE7_RunOnceHasShown_Explain
       VALUENAME "RunOnceHasShown"
       KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main"

IE7_RunOnceHasShown="Do Not Display IE7 Run Once Page"
IE7_RunOnceHasShown_Explain="Checking the box will disable the IE7 Run Once page that request various config information from the user."
SSD="SSD Custom"

Thanks in advance!  (in case anyone's wondering, this registry change gets rid of that pesky IE 7 config page that loads for EVERY user that logs into a box after IE7's been installed.  There's one more part to it, if anyone wants to know, just shoot me a message)

    Accepted Solution

    Looks syntactically correct. But this is not a real policy (it writes outside the \policies\ keys), so you have to change the Filter setting from the View menu in the GP editor to uncheck the box "Only show policies that can be fully managed" to be able to see it.

    I have copy-pasted and imported your adm template and it works. Can you explain what's not working?

    Thanks, I was able to see it just fine once I did that.  *sigh*  An afternoon of pounding head on keyboard, and it was that simple. :)  Thanks!
