We get an erro wehn we want to start the Group Olicy Mannagment cosole. 2003 server

When we want to run the Group Policy Mannagment console we get the following error and it does not run:

Program: c"\windows\system32\mmc.exe

We get the same eeror no matter of we run the gpedit.msc or got from the start menu or even if we right click the OU in AD and click on group policy.

I tried uninstalling and reinstallin the Group policy managment console and it did not work. I did that by downloading it from Microsoft.
