How to edit install.ins file and save it

I need to edit a IE domain gpo on the default domain policy and cannot.
The first servers were 2003 and now 2008.
I found the \\FQDN\Sysvol\FQDN\Policies\<GPOGUID>\User\Microsoft\IEAK\install.ins
I want to edit that line:  Quick_Link_2=https://exc-ca/owa
But the file dont want to save or replace.... (not enough right)
Any idea ?

you need to edit gpo through the Group Policy Management, trying to edit the files manually is a bad idea.

Find the name of the GPO using the below suggestions

If you have an XP machine or a server 2003 around, you can install the Remote Server Administration Tools and edit older policies just fine.

Hi Joshua,

We dont have any 2003 server and i found that a corrupted policy file was the problem.
