The module "schmmgmt.dll" failed to load
Posted on 2014-01-08
I have seen this posted in other locations, but none of them answer my question.
I have a 2008 R2 server that I am trying to load Active Directory snap-in through the MMC. It is not available, and I realize that I need to register it.
I am logged in with an account in the Exchange Admin and Domain Admin groups, and open CMD as Administrator. I type 'regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll' and get this error:
The module "schmmgmt.dll" failed to load.
Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
The specified module could not be found.
The schmmgmt.dll does NOT exist anywhere on the server, that I can tell. It does not exist in the %systemroot%\System32 or the %systemroot%\SysWOW64 folders.
Why would the file not exist, and more importantly, where can I get it from?
