Windows 10 ADMX files

I came across this issue when after adding the Windows 10 group policy templates to the central store. Once the appropriate ADMX and ADML files are in place and the Group Policy Management Console is opened the error "'Microsoft.Policies.Sensors.WindowsLocationProvider' is already defined" appears when searching through the Administrative Templates settings.

Seems alarming at first but basically the LocationProviderADM.admx file was renamed as Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx in Windows 10, so when the files are copied to the store there are two files with the same settings but with different names

To resolve this, as per the KB article simply delete the LocationProviderADM admx and adml files, then rename the Microsoft-Windows-Geolocation-WLPAdm.admx and adml files to LocationProviderADM
