SYMPTOMS
When you run Rsop.msc on a client, the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) console may show multiple languages under the Administrative Templates node. This problem occurs when any item that is under the Application Error Reporting node is configured on a client that has the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 installed.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because the .NET Framework 2.0 does not release country specific versions. Therefore, the .NET Framework 2.0 installs all the.adm files for the languages that are listed in the following items:
  • AER_1025.ADM
  • AER_1028.ADM
  • AER_1029.ADM
  • AER_1030.ADM
  • AER_1031.ADM
  • AER_1032.ADM
  • AER_1033.ADM
  • AER_1035.ADM
  • AER_1036.ADM
  • AER_1037.ADM
  • AER_1038.ADM
  • AER_1040.ADM
  • AER_1041.ADM
  • AER_1042.ADM
  • AER_1043.ADM
  • AER_1044.ADM
  • AER_1045.ADM
  • AER_1046.ADM
  • AER_1049.ADM
  • AER_1053.ADM
  • AER_1055.ADM
  • AER_2052.ADM
  • AER_2070.ADM
  • AER_3076.ADM
  • AER_3082.ADM
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  • Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\inf , and then click OK.
  • Back up all AER_<xxxx>.adm files.

    Note The <xxxx> placeholder represents the country code. To obtain the country code, extract the Dotnetfx.exe file, and then view the related End-User License Agreement (EULA).
  • Delete all AER_<xxxx>.adm files except the .adm file that you want to keep.
  • Reload the Rsop.msc console.
STATUS
