GPMC Not Seeing IE9 Preferences
Posted on 2014-02-20
Got a quicky one that hopefully someone can shed some light on....
We have a Win 2008 R2 AD forest with the clients running WinXP. We are in the process of upgrading the clients to Win7 and want to leverage Win7 and IE9 in Group Policy. I've added the new ADMX files to the PolicyDefinitions on the Win7 client however when I fire up GPMC I am unable to see the IE9 preferences.
I have gone through the various KB's, installed the patch that Microsoft state fixes the issue, and even edited the XML value for the "188.8.131.52" fix/work-round, but still I cannot see the IE9 preferences.
My questions are;
1. Do the DCs also have to be running IE9 as well as the Win7 client even though we're not using a central store.?
2. Are there any other known fixes other than the Microsoft patch and/or editing the XML file?
Any and all help is most welcome.
