Group Policy Edit – Snap-in failed to initialize

When I try to edit a Group Policy object, I get the “Snap-in failed to initialize” error.

Cause: This may be happen if Group Policy cannot find framedyn.dll.

Solution: If you use installation scripts, make sure that your scripts place the %windir%\system32\wbem directory in the system path. By default, %windir%\system32\wbem is in the system path already; therefore, you are not likely to encounter this issue if you do not use installation scripts.
