Doing some group policy work on your remote server, this error can appear:
In our instruction we are going to describe how to fix that.
Dealing with problem on Windows 10.
In Windows 10 that editor can be installed without using additional funds.
For a start, we have to create a bat file which contains code. To create that file, open notepad, add code there and save it as "file.bat", specifying "All files" in the file type.
This is the code that you have to enter in the file:
dir /b C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientExtensions-Package~3*.mum >find-gpedit.txt
dir /b C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientTools-Package~3*.mum >>find-gpedit.txt
echo Installing gpedit.msc
for /f %%i in ('findstr /i . find-gpedit.txt 2^>nul') do dism /online /norestart /add-package:"C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\%%i"
echo Gpedit is installed successfully.
On the screenshot is pictured how to save a file as bat:
After that you have to run this file as administrator.
After that your group policy editor will be installed and ready to work!
Installing group policy editor on Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Attention: You can also try to install it using Windows 10 solution.
If you had that error on old system, you have to download gpedit.msc, as an additional app.
First, download that archive, unzip it and run setup.exe:
After that downloading wizard is going to open and ask you to install missing files.
Next, you can use your group policy editor!
