How do you get the additional account information tab with AD tools on a Windows 7 64bit machine

I have the Windows 2003 AD tools installed locally on a Windows 7 64bit machine.  I have registered the acctinfo.dll from the command line and it says successfully registered.  When I close out of AD and then open AD again and open a user account it does not have the additional account information tab.  

Does this process work on a Windows 7 x64 install?  AD tools work just fine on this computer.  I just cannot see the additional account information tab to view the details on a user account.

The .dll needs to be applied on the domain controller itself. While some of the additional info you get from the tab is domain specific some of it is domain controller specific. I would assume that if you installed the dll on all your DC's and then on your workstation you may get what you are looking for but it is possible you will have to connect to the DC to see the tab itself.

I guess I should have mentioned that on a Windows XP machine the AD Tools work with the additional account information tab.  I just recently upgraded to Windows 7 at our company and the tab is not available even though the DLL is registered.  So yes our AD is configured properly to allow for this.

Microsoft seems to have a 64bit version for Enterprise customers:
Acctinfo2.dll for Vista x64 admins

There is a completely unsupported 64bit version of "acctinfo2.dll" floating around (http://www.activedir.org/ACCTINFO2_64BIT.zip), mentioned and linked here:
64-bit Version of Acctinfo2.dll
