Windows 10 Ent - ARM and Group Policy software installs

Steven Whiting 101 Reputation points


We've having a big issue with a Surface Pro X that we have put Windows 10 2004 Ent on it, joined it to the domain and although it appears to be getting some policies, none of the software install policies are working.

What's worse is if you attempt to run

gpresult /scope:computer /h a.html

You get

Error: The specified module could not be found.

I've done sfc /scannow which has found all OK.

Any ideas what is going on?

Again it is Windows 10 Enterprise Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.746)

A family of Microsoft operating systems that run across personal computers, tablets, laptops, phones, internet of things devices, self-contained mixed reality headsets, large collaboration screens, and other devices.

    You can change Group Policies by opening Group Policy Editor first. You can open it by following these steps:

    Log in an administrator account. If you are already logged in as an administrator, proceed to step 2.
    Press Windows + R to open Run.
    Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    After opening Group Policy Editor, you can now make the necessary changes that you want.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    I also have the same issue with a batch of Surface Pro X. Running 20H2 Build 19042.746.

    It takes multiple restarts to get Group Policy to apply vs. 1 or 2 for other machines.

    Same error when attempting to generate a gpresult in command prompt. Works when using GPMC.

    None of our Intel-based machines have these errors.

    Is this normal?
