What I would recommend, frankly, is to use Microsoft's Free ADMX Editor,
that comes with the ADMX Migrator. It makes creating ADMX files much simpler
than doing it by hand. I, personally, have not undertaken manual authoring
of ADMX files since this tool came out. Its also been updated since the
initial release to fix some issues people had.

Subject: [gptalk] ADMX custom base addition


 I'm going to create some custom ADMX templates.  I'd like them to all show
up under a new category (called Custom) in Policies>Administrative
Templates.  Following the ADMX Syntax Reference Guide, I've found that if I
set the new category in each individual ADMX, I'll wind up with duplicate
nodes.  The recommendation is to create a new Base ADMX file to define this
new Custom category, then reference the base from new ADMX policy files.
Following the code snippets in the Syntax Guide,  I've attempted to create
the new base and reference it from the example2 admx file, but the new
category doesn't show up and I get errors about SupportedOn being undefined.
Does anyone here happen to have a working example of a custom base and an
admx policy file that references it I could take a look at?
