Outlk12.adm is in not in a valid format

Hi everyone,

Our WIndows Server 2008 DC is throwing up this error:

"The .adm file "...Policies\{100177F0-8B76-44B7-9AC4-33028DB9060F}\adm\outlk12.adm" is in not in a valid format and must be replaced. Details: Input string was not in a correct format."

If it told me what line then I might have been able to take it from there.  Where and what formatting error am I looking for here?

have you tried to replace the template file with the ones downloadable at Microsoft?


When editing GPOs on a Windows 2008 server, using the new ADMX templates is recommended.
