Cannot start AD Replication monitor

I have a win 2k server DC that is not the Operations Master or FSMO just an additional domain controller. I was able at one time to run AD replication monitor after installing Support Tools on this machine. Now I cannot, as it will not run , start or do anything. Th other DC runs this just fine and I see no replication errors on either. No symptoms of a problem either. I just periodically run replmon to check up on things as a method of maintenance. nbtstat shows no problems as neither does dc diag or net diag. Any thoughts on why it will not start? I am a stickler on things being correct and would in a heartbeat demote the puppy and redo the AD on this machine, but wanted to see if any one had any thoughts on this nuisance.  I have copied replmon.exe back from a known good copy just to make sure that it didn't get hammered.
TIA

Replmon is one of the tools that has been updated by service packs (if it was installed by then). If you installed the support tools from the installation CD after you installed a SP on the machine, this might be the problem. In that case, you can try to uninstall the support tools and reinstall the current version:
Windows 2000 SP4 Support Tools
