Active Directory - Installing ADUC

Hello Experts!

    I am running Windows 7 and have went out and downloaded the correct Admin Tool Pack for that works with the 64-bit Win 7 OS.  The install went fine, the problem is when I open it, it doesn't see my Active Directory.  All I'm getting on the right side is a big red X which states "MMC could not create the snap-in."   Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Once you download RSAT, ensure that you configure it properly through the Control Panel:

Additionally, here is a good reference to keep on hand: Microsoft's own list of the tools found within RSAT along with which versions of Windows Server they can control:
