Using Poledit for policies w2K server w98 stations

I have a 58 machine network on which I run Win 98. The sever is Win 2K. Until recently I had no problem editing policies in poledit following the usual procedure of transferring config.pol from the server to a work station to work on it and transferring it back to run it. Then I had to replace the image on the station I was using for this and I can no longer edit my policies. I have reinstalled poledit on the station and I can edit the MS default policies and access ADM files but not my transferred Config.pol. I get a long message re. not being ably to flush the registry on the station.

I'm missing something basic and probgably very silly. Any help out there please?

Does it give an error number..... and could you give us some of the exact wording of the error message.

Just an afterthought when you restored the image had you changed the System Policy since making the image...and did you update it afterwards?

I'll have to check that out. The network is at work, in a junior school. I'll get back.
