Converting regional settings reg key into an adm template

Hello everyone,

I am having an issue when converting a reg key into an adm file.  It semi works and I need the experts to figure this one out because this is not my forte.  
My reg file is

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

I have found the issue.

If you right-click the imported adm in gpedit (i.e. r-click Control Panel\International) - and choose View, Filtering
Untick "only show policy settings that can be fully managed"
Click OK - you will see your list appear.

Try Reg2ADM:

I have tried that one first and I got half way there.  That tool was used first and that was posted in my first post.

Yes - same result for me - am looking at it...

dbrs_helpdeskAuthor Commented:
This works.  Now do I have to enable all the settings?

and235100Commented:
Yes - they will all need to be enabled separately!

Heed the warning though:

"Therefore if the Group Policy Object that implements this setting is removed, the setting will remain."
