Hello Folks,

For some ready I am missing "Control Panel" and other "Administrative Template" group policies as you see below. Did I perhaps add the Office 2013 ADMX templates incorrectly? How can I restore the defaults?

Thanks!

Looks like you have implemented central store for ADMX. Ensure you have copied all files to central store or reinstall ADMX templates: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929841

As Miguel has stated above, it appears that you have implemented the Group Policy Central Store but only copied across the ADMX files for Office 2010 and 2013.

To fix this, on your Domain Controller go into C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions > press Ctrl + A > right click and click Copy > go to \\domain.com\SYSVOL\domain.com\Policies\PolicyDefinitions > paste the files into here.

Close the Group Policy Management Console then open it up again - all the missing templates should now be visible.
