This error appears when you have updated the ADML and ADMX file to Windwos 10, version 1803. Let’s see how to fix it!
When trying to editing a policy, you receive this error: Resource ‘$(string id=Win7Only)’ referenced in attribute displayName could not be found.
This is a known issue for Microsoft, in fact there was an update in the Windows 10 version 1803’s SearchOCR.ADML file and this line was missed in the new ADML file:
<string id=”Win7Only”>Microsoft Windows 7 or later</string>
The way I used to fix this was to manually editing SearchOCR.ADML.
- Make a copy of \Policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-us\searchocr.adml. Normally this path is under \\yourdomain\sysvol\yourdomain. This is needed in case the file you’ll edit gets corrupted.
- With a text editor, open \Policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-us\searchocr.adml and search for <string id=”OCREveryPage”>Force TIFF IFilter to perform OCR for every page in a TIFF document</string>.
- Add the following string, right after <string id=”OCR”>OCR</string>:
- Save the file and try again (allow some time for replication if you have multiple Domain Controllers).
EDIT: There’s a KB from MS finally released for this HERE.
