NetSupport School V11 templates are different then V10,10.5,10.7

Summary

NetSupport School integrates with Microsoft's Active Directory structure enabling you to centrally manage Student configurations and Tutor Configurations. From version 11 of NetSupport School these configurations can now be integrated using ADMX Files, in previous versions of NetSupport School only ADM Template files were available to be imported into Active Directory to apply the Tutor or Student Configuration.
 
NetSupport School version 11 now includes 4 ready-made Administrative Templates using the ADMX format listed below, each ADMX file will also include a corresponding ADMX Language Specific resource file (.ADML).
 
NSS_Tutor_Machine.ADMX - Contains Configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Tutor, this is a Machine Policy.
NSS_Tutor_User.ADMX - Contains Configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Tutor, this is a User Policy.
NSS_Student_Machine.ADMX - Contains configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Student, this is a machine policy.
NSS_Student_User.ADMX - Contains configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Student, this is a User policy. 
 
When you install NetSupport School the template files will be copied to the \Program files\NetSupport\NetSupport School\ADM Files\ADMX Files. 
 
The corresponding ADMX Language Specific resource files (.ADML) for each of the above ADMX files will also be found in the following location \Program files\NetSupport\NetSupport School\ADM Files\ADMX Files\en-GB

Details

To apply the ADMX file to your Active Directory environment for the NetSupport School configuration options to be visible in the Group Policy Management Console, the ADMX files listed above and their corresponding ADML file will need to be copied to your Domain Central Store.
 
Note: If you have not created a Central store for your domain please refer to the Microsoft documentation on how to create the Central Store for ADMX files.
Please find below the default location for a Domain Central Store:
 
ADMX files are stored in this location: %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions
ADML files are stored in this location: %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions\ll-cc*
 
*Where ll-cc represents the language identifier, such as en-US for English United States or en-GB for English Great Britain.
 
The Templates will automatically be integrated once they are placed into the correct folder. However all NetSupport Policies are set to {not configured} by default.
