Integration of system information with MMC


Somewhere between W2K and WinXP 'system information' disappeared from MMC. I appreciate that the information can be seen in Accessories->System Tools->System Information, but I prefer the integrated view.

Any idea on how I get it back into MMC.

Thanks in advance...

From a win2000 box copy
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSInfo\msinfo32.dll and msinfo32.msc
to the same place (or anywhere actually) on to a WinXP box

REGSVR32 %pathtofileifneeded%\msinfo32.dll

And after a RegSvr32 DllRegisterServer success popup that should be it.  computer info should appear in computer managment even without the need to do any /a uthoring.
The .msc file can also be used just to access the System Information by itself.
