Vista Admin Pack AD Not opening – FIXED

When I first installed the Admin pack for vista, it worked perfectly, I was able to connected to every thing with out any issues, however I did notice within in the AD MMC  the icons were not quite right, some were missing and things just were very hard to determine what was a group and what was a user, you really had to pay attention to the objects.

Or if you don’t even get that far, as there have been reports that some people are unable to connect to AD, or other MMC consoles after the installation.
The connection some how gets lost and you are unable to again connect to a MMC console.

Anyway’s there is a very easy fix.

Install the Admin pack, then run the below script.

(this is simply registering the necessary DLL’s.

@echo off
