    Windows 7 taskpad for resetting passwords

    Hi
    I have got the admin tools to install to windows 7 and they seem fine but I cant get a custom mmc to load for users (delegation *seems* to be fine in ad)
    They can load the ad users and computers but when they try to run my mmc an error "This function is not supported on this system" and I have no idea why.
    All the mmc needs to do is allow staff to reset passwords from a buried OU down but I cant see where the problem is and that error is so useful...

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    My problem is different. I don't want to install the 220MB .MSU file on each client so I've been trying to find a way around it.

    It was nice and easy on XP... install adminpak.msi and then make a taskpad view in a MMC.

    You really have to use the MSU, suck it up
    Did you get it to work with the MSU and taskpad?

    Does it provide a helpful error as to which DLLs are missing if you just copy DSA.MSCacross from a machine with RSAT installed and try to run it on a fresh machine. I'd give that a go and maybe grab a copy of procmon and see what files it tries and fails to access on load, this should get you the dependencies (depends.exe from the Windows SDK may be able to extract them as well) then it is just a case of putting the DLLs in the right place and registering them. Could probably bundle the whole lot up into an MSI of your own with something like Winstall LE and just deploy that.

    @SYNACK: No useful error messages are given if you do that (I already tried!)
