The supported bit is confusing when you add the AGMP bit to it.  AGMP is
installed by using a Launcher HTA and it plainly states that AGMP, which
simply adds a "Change Control" node to GMPC, is supported on Windows
2008 x64.

I wonder what the official line should be.......

As noted: It's not supported by Microsoft. I have all 64 bit DCs and I
do sometimes need to edit from there. Example: to get the SID of an
account correctly into a User Rights Assignment setting...if not done on
a DC, you can get an account's "text" name added to the GPO instead of
its SID... if the account is ever renamed...you break the GPO for the
account.

I can say it has worked just fine for specific Security settings I've
used it on (Account Policies, User Rights Assignments, and Security
Options only) and for Admin Template (registry) items. I have not tested
other client extensions. Always test in the lab first to make sure it
works.

You're on your own with this one....

-woops i read that wrong -

- it is 64bit 2003 R2 server

- copying the gpedit from system32 to the syswow64 folder has fixed the
problem - is this soemthing I can leave and not have to worry about or
is this a temp solution I should delete and not keep?

thanks for all of your help btw!! you've all been quite helpful
