Group Policy Editor crashes when trying to define numbers > 999

  1. Hello together,

    we have a problem when using the Group Policy Object Editor in Win 2003
    Server Standard Edition SP1. We added custom registry settings to the
    Sceregvl.inf as described in
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;214752. After we
    registered the changes (regsvr32 scecli.dll) the new entries where available
    in the Group Policy Editor.
    But each time we try to define the policy setting for an entry with
    RegistryType = 4 (REG_DWORD) and DisplayType = 2 (String) the Group Policy
    Object Editor crashes. Well of course DWORD is not intended for strings -
    but there seems to be no other way if the number entered should be greater
    999.
    Does anyone know a way how to get numbers greater than 999 entered in the
    Group Policy Editor or to prevent these crashes?

    Philipp

    BTW: the problem occured on two independent PCs (both configured as AD
    controller)

    Not sure if this will help - But this pacth fixed a simular proble with adm
    files for GPOs with string lenght problems.
