Im trying to install the 2010 office template. So I created a central store named "policydefinitions" under \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies.  I added the admx files to the root of the "policydefinition folder". And created a folder "EN-US" and added the adm files to that folder.

Now when I go to edit a gpo I get an error parsing. I attached screenshot. What did I do wrong?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Make sure you actually have your folders set up properly with the correct set of files.  The EN-US folder has to be inside the PolicyDefinitions folder and the files in the EN-US folder must be ADML files, not ADM. ADML are the language files, ADM are the older version of the policy definition files. Also, the main folder has to be named "PolicyDefinitions" (with an "s" on the end).
