Administrative Templates GPO Snap-In Error

Does anyone know what would cause this.  I can browse all the GPO settings but once I click on the Administrative Templates I receive the error MMC cannot initialize the snap-in.

No event log error or anything.  I can access it just fine on the server but not on my machine.  i am running windows 8 and it worked awhile ago.  I just redid my system but I put all the admin tools back on it again.

You stated you are getting the error from a Windows 8 workstation.

Have you installed and updates recently?
Does it work from a Windows 7 workstation?
Have you tried to clear you MMC cache in your profile? <C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MMC
Tried to uninstall reinstall .Net?

Good evening, what is your domain and forest level on the Domain? 2003/2008?

Have you tried doing this from the console of a server, or DC?

Cheers

I have 2 DC's that are 2008 R2 and one that is 2012.  I have no problem modifying the GPO's on the servers them selves.

None of these fixes worked.  I actually got rid of Windows 8 on my machine and am running Windows 7 again.  That corrected my problem.  I guess I am back to just using Windows 8 in a VM environment.  Windows 8 is definitely not ready for a corporate environment in my eyes.  Too many things just don't function with it.
