How to get the Windows 2003 Admin Tools Working on Vista

Out of the box, the Windows 2003 Adminpak tools do not run on Windows Vista. When they are loaded, MMC claims that “MMC could not create the snap-in.”. This is due to some DLLs not being registered properly. To fix this, paste the following commands into a command prompt or batch file running with elevated privileges (right click and “Run as Administrator”):
