Jerry-

One possible workaround to this is to use my GPMC PowerShell cmdlets
<http://www.sdmsoftware.com/freeware> , since they don't have the dependency
on that javascript file. Of course, they do require you to be using
PowerShell, but hey, everyone should be already, right?! :-)

There is another aspect to this that relates to usability. It regards the
GPMC scripts. Some of them depend upon the 'Lib_CommonGPMCFunctions.js'
resource file to function correctly. My experience is that any of the sample
scripts that rely upon that resource fail to work. I have yet to find an
exception to this or to develop any type of work-around on 64-bit systems.
GPMC scripts that do not depend upon that file seem to work just fine. My
testing is NOT exhaustive.

 

In short, you really need to have a "very" good reason to be installing and
using it on a 64-bit device...and did I mention that it's "NOT" supported by
Microsoft? :-)

 

Use Vista or W2KOCHO 64-bit devices where it's supported natively (with all
the new features as well)!

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
