I get this error message first before trying to open Local Group Policy Editor "Encountered an error while parsing. Unrecognized input signature.

File C:\WINDOWS\Policy Definitions\Terminalserver-WinIP.admx, line 1, column 4" Help please. Thank you for your time.

Although I don't have Windows 10 Pro to confirm, it seems that the Terminalserver-WinIP.admx is corrupt

 

SFC Scan

1. Right-click on the Start w8start.png button and select Command Prompt (Admin)

2. When command prompt opens, Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste (Right-click > Paste) the following command into it, then press Enter

sfc /scannow

3. Once it finishes, copy and paste the following into the command-prompt window and press Enter.

copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"

4. Once this has completed please go to your Desktop and you will find CBS.txt => Right-click on this file and choose Send To...Compressed (zipped folder). Please upload this zipped file CBS.zip to this thread

Please Note:: if the file is too big to upload to your next post please upload via a service such as Dropbox or One Drive or SendSpace and just provide the link.

Open Command Prompt as administrator and type below command.

Ren "C:\WINDOWS\Policy Definitions\Terminalserver-WinIP.admx"   Terminalserver-WinIP.admx.bak

Gpupdate  /force

Now open the Local Group Policy Editor to find out issue resolved.

Although this won't fix it, it will give us some information:

 

In command prompt (does not have to be elevated), run this command:

fsutil hardlink list C:\WINDOWS\PolicyDefinitions\Terminalserver-WinIP.admx >%UserProfile%\Desktop\info.log && notepad %UserProfile%\Desktop\info.log

After running this, it will open up a notepad file

 

Copy and paste the contents of it

Yes, the problem is admx files are system files and that is why I had you do the sfc scan. When it reported clean, I wanted to verify that. Is there any setting that you are trying to access in Group Policy that this is preventing you? That said, its not this update that's causing it. The file that this is saying is corrupt is Terminalserver-WinIP.admx and I don't have Windows 10 Pro to verify either :(

Initiating 'group policy' brings me the error message but not prevent to open and use the policy editor. That said, I configured 'Windows Update' in Administrative Templates under Computer Configuration to: (setting #2) Notify before downloading and installing updates instead of the default setting, in which case giving me the option to choose which updates to download and install. BTW, I opened the Terminalserver-WinIP.admx file in question thru 'notepad' and is empty. Here's a screenshot, I hope to understand better.

Can you rename it to Terminalserver-WinIP.admx.bak? Then see if the problem still occurs. I would not delete the file, just in case I need to use it again

Did what you asked, the error message is gone. I made a copy of the old file, just in case, and now I think I will be deleting it. It has been a long and tiring procedure just to get rid of simple error message but you did it. Thank you very much for being patient with me. This would not be possible without your help and support. Thank you again.

You are welcome :)

I would still keep the file, just in case.

I could compress it into a zip file and keep it in the same folder so not to lose it. Thanks again.
