Group Policy Preferences Client-Side Extension Hotfix Rollup

This is a rollup package of many hotfixes for the Group Policy Preferences Client-Side Extension. This package resolves the following issues:

  • The Windows Event Log service crashes when the regional options preferences are set to English (United Kingdom).
  • If you create or update a virtual private network (VPN) connection by using a Group Policy object, the connection does not bind to IP Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or IP Version 6 (TCP/IPv6).
  • A Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) query that is used by item level targeting uses an incorrect base distinguish name.
  • Group Policy Service (GPSVC) stops responding during the GPSVC shutdown process if third-party printer drivers are installed by Group Policy Preferences.
  • The %GPTPATH% variable is not resolved correctly when Group Policy Preferences are processed.
There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
