Can you simply try to right click and run the cmd prompt as Administrator and try
copy /y c:\kb2841134\inetres.admx c:\windows\policydefinitions\

If you are going to use the command line, remember to right click and "run as administrator"  ....just because you are an admin doesn't mean the command prompt is running with elevated privileges. And unlike a GUI, it won't trigger a UAC prompt. It'll simply deny access.

You may also need to add yourself to the Schema Admins group.

Remember to run the script as administrator

I have done all of the above and I am still getting access is denied.  I log off and back on to the server after adding my username to the schema admin group.  Any other suggestions?

Old post but thought I'd give the solution. For each of the two files MS say to overwrite, take ownership over the file away from Trusted Installer and give it to your admin account. Then set the file to inherit from the parent.

Once that is done, you can run the commands:
copy /y C:\temp\KB2841134\inetres.admx %SYSTEMROOT%\PolicyDefinitions\inetres.admx
copy /y C:\temp\KB2841134\en-us\inetres.adml %SYSTEMROOT%\PolicyDefinitions\en-us\inetres.adml

Open in new window


and it will work.
