I've been using ADSIedit on our Win2K/2K3 servers running active directory to be able to setup ftp users (such that they login to the specific folder, etc.)  All of a sudden, adsiedit doesn't work, returning the error when you try to start it of "MMC cannot open the selected file".  It sounds suspicious to me to hear me say this, given the problem, but I really didn't change permissions on anything recently, and I'm signing on to the server with admin users trying to run this.

Any ideas how to troubleshoot/solve this?
