The tool in Control Panel that lets you uninstall or change a program may not work when you try to change AGPM server settings.
WORKAROUND: Before you try to change AGPM server settings by using Control Panel, make a copy of the AGPM Archive folder. You can then use Setup.exe to reinstall the AGPM server and choose the configuration parameters that you want.
Reports do not display the links that were added to a Group Policy Object
The AGPM settings and difference reports do not display the links that were added to a Group Policy Object (GPO).

Reports do not display all “Choice Options Properties” settings

WORKAROUND: Manually start the AGPM Service after the domain controller is online.
Upgrade of AGPM Server to AGPM 4.0 SP1 is blocked when you upgrade from the AGPM 4.0 release plus the hotfix
If you try to upgrade the AGPM server to AGPM 4.0. SP1 after installing AGPM 4.0 and then installing the AGPM hotfix (see Knowledge Base article 2643502), the upgrade fails and cannot be completed.
