Cannot run Server Management console

I cannot run the usual Server Management Console for Windows SBS 2003.  I get the error 'MMC Cannot open the file c:\documents and settings\all users.windows\application data\microsoft\smallbusinessserver\administration\itprosbsconsole.msc.  This may be because the file does not exist... etc.

Lo and behold, it doesn't exist.  There is a whole load of files under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Administration, including the itprosbsconsole.msc file referred to above, but even if I click on LaunchConsole.exe, it comes up with the above error.  Is there any way of making SBS look under a directory that will actually work, or should I just create this directory from scratch?  If so, what should I populate it with?

The best way to fix broken consoles in SBS is to re-install them using the SBS maintenance wizard.
