MS14-025/KB2928120: An Update for Group Policy Preferences

Looking at this article: http://blogs.technet.com/b/srd/archive/2014/05/13/ms14-025-an-update-for-group-policy-preferences.aspx

I grabbed the check script from here (bottom of the page) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2962486

and ran it on my domain controller.  The script immediately gave me the error “cannot bind to argument to parameter ‘path’ because it is null”.

Apparently this is an uncaught exception when no XML files exist in the path subfolders.  It appears that ONLY group policy preferences are stored in XML, and this XML file will only show up if group policy preferences are implemented, meaning if you don’t have XML files in %windir%\SYSVOL\domain then you are not affected by this patch.  Group policies themselves appear to be stored as INF and other types.
