MMC cannot open the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\gpmc.msc

Problem Description
When attempting to open Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), the
following error message is received:

MMC cannot open the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\gpmc.msc. This may be because
the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later
version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access
rights to the file.

The issue can be caused by a corrupt MMC configuration file or gpmc.msc

1. Delete the old configuration file for GPMC
2. Remove and reinstall GPMC

Deleting and recreating the gpmc.msc MMC resolved the issue
