I have built a new Domain environment. 2 domain controllers Server 2012 R2 (running in Hyper-V 2012 R2).  I created 6 or 7 standard GPOs and tested them. Everything worked as it should.
A couple days pass I did some windows updates…
A couple more days pass then I realized I forgot to add a particular GPO. So I login and create the new GPO. When I go to policies > administrative templates I get:  Administrative Templates    Resource ‘$(string.VerMgmtAuditModeEnable)’ referenced in attribute displayName could not be found.
File:
\\contoso.local\SysVol\contoso.local\Policies\PolicyDefinitions\inetres.admx, line 1495, column 249

Every GPO I created days  ago that had Admin templates edited gets the same error.
GPOs have always been edited from the server, not a win 7 desktop w/ admin tools.
This happens on both Domain Controllers.
All GPOs still seem to work fine.
Can’t seem to find a solution. Anybody have any input?

I have already tried Copying %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions\
To
%systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions

I have also run dcgpofix /target:Domain

I am now looking to copy inetres.admx from another server.

you can also download the Internet Explorer adm/admx files from microsoft to make sure they are up to date and are not corrupted.

%systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions

I am having the same issue but when I try the above method I am still getting the same error message.

mjsimmer in answer to your question you have to take ownership of the existing inetres.admx file first. Right click on the file, select properties go to the security tab click advanced, select the owner tab click edit. Then select your username and click apply. Close all the boxes and you can then change the permissions on the file to give you full access.
