ADM/ADMX Template Utilities

I need to find a good (hopefully free) ADM/ADMX template utility. I can write ADM templates myself, but I don't have the time or energy to put into learning the XML for ADMX templates. I've been using Full Armor ADMX Migrate to build some test templates but it doesn't seem to get the proper syntax (every time I put the new templates into the PolicyDefinitions folder and run gpedit to test, it errors out with some pretty vague error messages that are not very standard. That and it doesn't seem to consistently save any changes I make to the ADMX templates).

I'd give sysprosoft's editor a try

http://www.sysprosoft.com/adm_summary.shtml

I've used their policy reporter and that is good.   Haven't fully tested this but I also hear they have good support.  

not free but not reasonably priced, you can test out the full trial.

thanks

Well, I think I figured out my issues. Turning off word wrap in note pad helps for getting to the right line in the ADMX file. That ADM editor seems to be significantly less friendly than Full Armor, which I think I can figure out now. But Thanks for the mention.

The provided utility isn't as useful as the one I had already.

ok, so the full armor is better.  I met Danny Kim from full armor a few years ago and he is a really smart guy so it doesn't surprise me that they make good products

Also thanks AC for the work you are doing here...you are one of the better new comers to the boards in the last year.

Thanks
