Symptoms

Symptom 1

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure the Group Policy Preferences for Internet Explorer in a domain environment.

  • In the Group Policy Management Editor, you click to select one or more of the following check boxes on the User Configuration\Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Internet Settings\Internet Explorer 7\Advanced tab or on the User Configuration\Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Internet Settings\Internet Explorer 8\Advanced tab :

    • Check boxes under Accessibility

      • "Reset text size to medium while zooming"

      • "Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs"

    • Check boxes under Security

      • "Allow active content to run in files"

      • "Allow software to run or install even..."

    • Check boxes under International

      • "Send IDN Server Names"

      • "Send UTF -8 URL"

      • "Show information bar for encoded address"

  • You apply these settings to some computers that are running Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

In this scenario, these Group Policy configurations are not deployed to client computers successfully. For example, under Security in the Internet Explorer Group Policy Preferences, you click to select the "Allow active content to run in files" check box. However, in the Internet Explorer Preferences on the client-side, this check box is not selected after the policy is applied to the client.

Symptom 2

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure the Group Policy Preferences for Internet Explorer in a domain environment.

  • In the Group Policy Management Editor, you double-click to edit the same policy setting again.

In this scenario, the GPME window freezes and crashes. You cannot make any changes.

Resolution

To resolve the issue, install this hotfix on computers that have the Group Policy Management Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in installed.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes

Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

    Version

    Product

    SR_Level

    Service branch

    6.0.600
    1.
    22xxx

    Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

    SP1

    LDR

    6.0.600
    2.
    22xxx

    Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

    SP2

    LDR

  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files apply only to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxx version number.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 and for Windows Vista" section. MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
