Remote Desktop StandAlone Snap In

Hi Experts,

When I am trying to add Remote Desktop Stand Alone Snap In through MMC. Remote Desktop is not showing in  snapin . Can any one guess whats the root cause of this? I am herewith attaching the screen shot of the Remote Desktop Stand Alone Snap which usually comes. More over user has administrative rights.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure that's the case by the way. You can obtain the adminpak here - http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?form=MSHOME&mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=adminpak

If you definitely have it installed, just reinstall and you should have your snap-in back. :)

I would do a search for mstsc.exe sounds like it was deleted or moved.

Do you have the Win 2k3 adminpak installed? If so, have you tried reinstalling it? I'm sure this snap-in is part of it...

Hi PeteJThomas:

Thanks. Its true, without Admin Pack it won't come. Is there any way to install only Remote Desktop SnapIn using Admin Pack.

I believe you need to download the adminpak.msi file, put it in the Windows\System32 folder, and run the following command from command prompt:

msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=FeTSMgrConsole /qb

If that doesn't add what you want, it could potentially be:

msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=FeTSClientConsole /qb

Give the first a try and see if that adds the snap-in you need. (The FeTSMgrConsole is the abbreviated name of the "Terminal Services Tools" admin tool, FeTSClientConsole is the abbr. name for the "Terminal Services Client" admin tool.)

@Nocturnal25:

I believe this is just the TS Client download - and I THINK what's required is the TS Admin tools available as part of the adminpak.msi, not the client itself (which is installed by default in Win XP).

I'm not 100% but I'm pretty sure you would either need to install the adminpak in its entirety, or the specific admin tool you want from it.

HTH!

are you just trying to find out why it is  not listed ?
Are you able to the RD client when to START>Run>MSTSC ?
if so , when the connection dialogue is open, you can do a 'save as'.

I have to admit, I was assuming he could RDP as normal using the RDP client, and that he specifically wanted the remote connections mmc snap-in. If my assumption was incorrect, there are far easier ways of achieving it!

Thanks Valuelabs97, and glad everything is ok.

Out of interest, what was my answer missing to get a B?
