Just wrote about the KB how to update your administrative templates on your domain controller for easy access. For those who have not read the KB is probably not aware of the problem that most probably will occur.

“Namespace ‘Microsoft.Policies.Sensors.WindowsLocationProvider’ is already defined as a target namespace for another file in the store. File \\<domain name>\SysVol\<domain name>\PolicyDefinitions\microsoft-windows-geolocation-wlpadm.admx, line 5, column 110″



The problem is simply that the file LocationProviderADM.admx was renamed in Windows 10 as Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx.

The workaround?

  1. Simply ignore it


  1. Delete the LocationProviderADM.admx and LocationProviderADM.adml files from the central store.
  2. Rename Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx to LocationProviderADM.admx
  3. Rename Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.adml to LocationProviderADM.adml
