    I'm trying to setup an easy way for administrators to use
    various administrator tools. I found an easy way to do it
    by customising MMC adding taskpad views. The only thing
    is that when I add a taskpad view to a Organisational Unit
    in Active Directory and then on the main page have a task
    that opens that organisational unit I get an error message
    stating "the specified action could not be completed" and
    it doesn't open it. But the really wearied thing is that
    if you click on the link a another 2 times then it starts
    working fine it's just the initial 2 times you click on
    when you first open the console - I've tried it on various
    different servers and get the same error - I anyone got
    any ideas? - I'm at the stage of pulling my hair out!!

    Many thanks in advance,

  2. I had the same problem, and find no solution.
    If you display the MMC tree, you will see that the problem arise when the
    tree is collapsed. If you extend the tree nodes first, shortcuts that you
    created on the taskpad will work just fine. I have not find a way to do it
    automatically on console start, this would probably solve the problem.
