SearchOCR.admx error after importing Windows 1803 ADMX files

Posted by bartvdw on 2727/0505/2018

After you import Windows 1803 ADMX files, you’ll get an error about ‘searchocr.admx’:

Resource ‘$(string.Win7Only)’ referenced in attribute displayName could not be found.
File %path_sysvol%\…\Policies\PolicyDefinitions\searchocr.admx, line 12, column 69

It appears that the Windows 1803 ADMX files do contain a newer version of the ‘SearchOCR.adml’ file, but not of the ADMX itself, which breaks the functionality. Although editing the ADML file can solve the issue, here some other options:

  • Copy back the ADML from your backup (you backup your ‘PolicyDefintions’ prior updating, right?)
  • Copy the ADML from Windows 1511 ADMX files
  • Install ‘Windows TIFF IFilter’ (TIFFIFilter) on a Windows10/Server 2016 and fetch the ADMX/ADML from there
  • Remove both the ADMX and ADML at once if you haven’t got GPO’s for Windows TIFF Filter

According to a post somewhere there are some other ‘orphaned’ ADML files as well, need to have a closer look at those later.

Microsoft published a KB for this on May 22, 2018.
