PROBLEM: When trying to edit Group Policies in a policy package I would get the error, "The snapin below, referenced in this document has been restricted by policy. Contact your administrator for details. Group Policy."

SOLUTION: After researching I found four registry values that fixed the problem (the keys and values are below). I created a .reg file with the values and applied them. Voila.

Example

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC]
"RestrictAuthorMode"=dword:00000000
"RestrictToPermittedSnapins"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC\{8FC0B734-A0E1-11D1-A7D3-0000F87571E3}]
"RestrictRun"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC\{0F6B957E-509E-11D1-A7CC-0000F87571E3}]
"RestrictRun"=dword:00000000
