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!

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

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