    Hi All...

    I've been trying to get a custom MMC to work on Windows Vista Business
    Edition. The MMC contains a snap-in for IIS 6.0 Manager for administration of
    some of my web servers. All other snap-ins work execept for this one. The
    error that I get is "MMC could not create the snap-in".

    Any ideas as to why this does not work (and a possible solution) would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Run MSCONFIG | click Tools Tab | click Disable UAC | click Launch button
    | Reboot. You can now add your snap-in and it should work. You can
    also follow the steps above and choose to Enable UAC after you have the
    snap-in installed.

    Thanks for replying. Unfortunately, this did not work. One point that I may
    not have made clear was that the IIS snap-in was already added to my custom
    MMC file. When I click the IIS portion in the Console Root, I get the error
    of "...could not create the snap-in..." After trying your suggestion, I'm
    still not able to use the IIS 6 Manager snap-in. Could the fact that the
    Snap-in is already present in my Custom MMC file be the problem?

    This shouldn't be the problem. This error might occur when there is some
    problem initializing snap in. Are you getting any detailed error message?

    Posting this to newsgroup might help.

    I am not getting any detailed information other than the error that I posted.
    I will try posting to the newsgroup that you suggest.
