Hello,

How to add AD admin tools, Users and Computers, Domains and Trusts and Sites
and Services, to a Win XP sp2 workstation MMC? Do I need to register some
DLL's because I can't see these tools when I try to add new snap-in
conmponent. What to register?

Thanks
-Will

Hi,

Latest version of adminpak is available for download here:

Administration Tools Pack (adminpak)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c16ae515-c8f4-47ef-a1e4-a8dcbacff8e3&DisplayLang=en

(Can be used to administer a Windows 2000 domain as well, but you
need to run it from a WinXP Pro or Win2k3 Server computer)
