Windows Components are missing from Group Policy. How do I add them?

The Windows Components are missing from Group Policy.  In the Policydefinitions folded on the DC there are only a few policies.

Where do I get the ADMX and ADML policies to put in the folder?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Grab them from where?.   Our servers are 2012 R2 and 2016

From the latest OS you'll be joining to the domain. If that's server 5016, grab them from there. If you have windows 10-1709 or 1803 though  those are newer, so you'd grab from the latest.

I do not think you understand.  The servers do not have any.  See attached.   Unless I am not understanding "grab them from there"   How about a location?

A default clean install of ANY version of windows has them in the windows directory. What you showed was default location of a central store... Which is NOT automatically created nor are files automatically copied in there.

So someone started the process of creating a central store at some point in the past. And didn't complete it or later deleted files from it. But what you took a Screenshot of is not the default location for local policy files.

I know you are trying to help, however, you are not telling me "where" the files are.  You say "grab them", but do not tell me where.  So your help is not beneficial.

Do you have a windows box? Did you go in the windows directory as u mentioned? Did you try using that search box in explorer to find any *.admx files?

Sorry that I am replying on an android phone and don't have immediate access to a computer to do a basic search for you. I'll do better next time.

I copied all the files from a server at another location and placed them in the PolicyDefinitions and EN-US folders.   Hence I figured out your "Grab Them" terminology.
