problem with running .msc snap-in unser Administrative Tools
Posted on 2004-10-11
I have upgraded Windows XP SP1 to SP2 and I noticed that the ".msc" components under Administrative Tools do not run anymore. These are: comexp.msc, secpol.msc,services.msc,compmgmt.msc,eventvmr.msc,perfmon.msc...
When I double-click on these under Adminstrative Tools menu to run them , I get the error "path not found". Doing a search I found all these files under \windows\system32 folder.
Therefore it must have something to do with these files are registered or a security setting.
Also trying to RUN these files under Start--> Run has the same effect: files not recognized.
How can I gain access back to these files? Suggestions, pls?
