I am trying to implement the new out of date active x controls GPO and they are not appearing in my GPO to set. Below is the link.

I cannot perform the second step here which I assume is because of a permission limitation from looking at the end locations permissions. Even when trying to add the ADM in administrative templates it does not show up. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong here?

From an elevated command prompt, use the following command to update the inetres.admx file:
copy /y %WINDIR%\KB2841134\inetres.admx %SYSTEMROOT%\PolicyDefinitions\inetres.admx
From an elevated command prompt, use the following command to update the inetres.adml file for the targeted languages:
copy /y %WINDIR%\KB2841134\<LanguageCode>\inetres.adml %SYSTEMROOT%\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\<LanguageCode>\inetres.adml

you realize that <LanguageCode> is a placeholder for example "en-us"
you could '
takeown /f %SYSTEMROOT%\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\ /r /d n

Open in new window

Yes, I was just referencing the command.

I was able to figure it out. Their instructions are based off a non-domain environment. So when following to commands to put the new ADM's in %SYSTEMROOT%\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\, they were not being pulled into GPMC to be set. So when I put them in C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions, the new settings populated and could be set.
