Is this the built in Domain admin username and password you are using on this server?

Well, I had to look it up:

Maybe file association:

From what I have seen, it looks like your error is usually paired with .MSI file assocation.

hi,

in my case, the problem still persist. however, I find a little way around opening my admin pads and other .msc.

open the mmc from run (i.e type "mmc" into run box)
it opens up the mmc. now from file > open, locate any .msc you wanna open, it should open from here.

That should also have the history of the last four .msc you opened.

I hope that is helpful while we await a permanent solution.

It sounds like the extension .msc isn't associated with mmc.exe

Try re-associateing them by doing the following:

Navigate to a .msc file such as dsa.msc which should be located at "c:\windows\system32\dsa.msc"
Right click and select properties of the .msc file and if you notice that its set to open with "Unknown application" change it  to open with Microsoft Management Console, by clicking  "Change..." (next to "Opens with"), then "Browse..." and navigate to "c:\windows\system32\mmc.exe". Click "Open", hit "OK", and then close the Properties dialog. After that, the .msc applications should work properly.
