    MMC errors.

    Hi.
    Anyone got any idea as to why when i run a custom MMC that ive made as anyone but an admin it errors with 'this function is not supported by this system' ?
    The adminpack is installed everywhere, users do have access to use MMCs in the GPOs set & the delegation is in place for the MMCs access to AD.

    Any ideas?

    I had this issue a while ago, and I believe it came down to file permissions on the MMC itself, after I moved the console to a different location it started working again.

    Are you using different versions of the MMC? Open it up and go to Help > About

    XP SP3 and 2003 SP2 use MMC 3.0, but XP SP2 uses MMC 2.0. It is recommended you upgrade to MMC 3.0.

    How do you mean, location?
    If i run it off my home folder as me, admin, it works. If i do the same but with 'run as' and then a teacher user, it doesnt work?

    As above, it works for me on my machine, but then not as a staff member.
    So i dont think its a version issue?

    Odd.
    I set the permissions on it to 'everyone=full control', and put it on the start menu share, and it works!? lol.

    Anyone got any idea on that?

    That's exactly it! I had to give those permissions to get it to work as well.

    Previously I just had the console on ICT Teachers desktop (which is read only) and this worked fine for 2 years.... Until it stopped working one day! I moved it to another share on the network, gave more permissions and just put a shortcut to the console on the desktop and this worked.

    Strange stuff huh?
