    The tools are built in to Server 2008 so just advertise mmc.exe and either add the required snapins each time or add the tools you want, save the console then add that file to the advertisment in quotes like: mmc.exe "mytools.mmc" loading up your preffs each time.

    If you want to manage a Windows 2003 server x64 or not from an XP client machine you should probably be using the latest version of the Admin Pack http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    If your client is Vista or 7 you will need to use Download details: Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 on the client. This should let you manage both newer and older servers.

    Thanks for the reply mate,

    I've downloaded: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 Administration Tools Pack for x64 editions
    and it is totally broke down my gpmc.msc and some of my 64 bit domain controller cannot edit or open the GPO object (>_<)"

    here's the error message:

    Windows cannot find 'gpedit.msc'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.



    so some of my domain controller is now become useless.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Did you install it onto a server rather than a client and also did you uninstall any previous versions of the admin pack before hand. You may need to uninstall it and see if that restores the older version then remove that before putting on the new one. If that does not work you may need to do some repairing of assosiations and stuff to make the snapins work again. I have not done that personally but it should be possible perhaps by installing the older version again which is probably in your system32 folder.

    You should still be able to manage the policies as it looks to just be the snapin that is not working. You could try installing the tools on an XP client and managing from there as a temporary measure.
