I am looking for Win2k Server remote administration tools that I can use on
my Win98 Machine.  I found a file called ADMINPACK.MSI on the Win2k Server
CD, but when I tried to install it on my Win98 machine, I got an error from
MFC Runtime Module, stating that "The application or DLL can not be loaded
on Windows 95, or Windows 3.1.  It takes advantage of unicode features only
available on Windows NT"

Then it completes the installation, but no icons appear in my start menu.

Do these tools not work in Win98 ?  Any ideas ?
Thanks
Tony

Should be on the server cd under
Clients\Srvtools\Win95 or
Clients\Srvtools\Win98
No?

I found and downloaded the MMC, but I got nothing.  It added a new start menu item "My Administrative Tools" but it is empty.

Go to the server type in at the start => Run menu => MMC then click on the console => add\remove snap in => Console root => Add and then you have a screen full with add-ins. Choose the add-ins that you want to use.

Save and install it on you W98 pc. You have install the MMC there and now type mmc and choose open and go to the new created MMC console.

A this is something I remember of my SMS 2.0 installations. This means that the user have no rights  and don not have the required permissions. Check this please.

I have found this in the KB base from MS:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q237/4/96.asp 

It's for Small Business Server but I can give you a hint what to do.

Security is not a issue, as I set myself up with admin access.

Unfortunately the KB article didn't give me much.  I am using Win98 not NT

Any other ideas ?

I have found this...

It is not possible to remotely administer a Windows 2000 server from
Microsoft Windows 95 or Microsoft Windows 98 clients.
