Thanks Darren that worked.

 

The only way I could do it was to run a command prompt with elevated 
privileges, then run the Adminpak.msi from within that command window.

Ian-

You need to run the adminpak.msi install while elevated in Vista in order for 
this to work. Try opening an elevated command shell and launching the MSI from 
there. I am using the 2003 AD U&C snap-in on Vista today. The one thing you 
will notice is that the icons for the snap-in are not correct, but the snap-in 
itself works.

Having upgraded my workstation to Vista in order to manage other Vista 
workstations with GP Objects I now find that AD Users & Computers does not work 
with Vista. Does anyone know how to manage users and computers whilst running 
Vista?

You'll also find Adminpak.msi directly on your servers:

 

%windir%\System32\adminpak.msi for x86 servers

%windir%\SysWOW64\adminpak.msi for x64 servers (since there is no 64 bit 
version of adminpak)

You'll need the 2003 server administration tools from Microsoft.com, or in the 
adminpak.msi on the server CD.

This is a Muppets question but I can't remember where to get the 'Users & 
Computers snap-in' for the mmc!

 

Any suggestions?
