Consider the following scenario:
You install the Group Policy Management Tools feature on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).
Note This feature is included with Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools.
You use the text filter function in the Group Policy Management Editor window.
Note When the text filter function is applied, only the items that match the filter criteria are returned.
You set the default input language to a language other than English (United States). For example, you set the default input language to English (Canada) or to French (Canada).
In this scenario, the text filter function may not return any results in the Group Policy Management Editor window. However, you expect the items that match the filter criteria to be returned in the Group Policy Management Editor window.
This issue does not occur if the default input language is English (United States).
Not all languages other than English (United States) are affected by this issue.
