I have Windows Small Business Server 2011. When trying to add a logon script for a group policy I get this error message which occurs after selecting the add button, then the browse button and selecting the file and then the Ok button:

The scripts component is unable to save the changes due to error 5.

Can somebody give me some help on how to resolve this issue?

The error is unclear to me as I have not seen it myself.

Check the permissions on the GPO to whom It applies and make sure it does not have an explicit deny to the administrator.

Can you navigate to the \\domain\sysvol\domain\Policies\
here you should see a folder with the GUID of the GPO {xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxx}
That you are editing.
Are you able to access it? check effective permissions.

see if this error occurs on a newly created GPO?

Thanks. It was the permissions. I thought that I had them because I was an administrator.
