I cannot locate launchconsole of a sbs 2003 sp2 server. How can I replace the missing module on the system. Is there another way to add more user licenses without server management?

I got to the configuration page, but there was no option for maintenance under tools. The closest choice was admin tools, but I could deselect all the other options. I have checked with another sbs 2003 server and the server mgt command is launchconsole.exe
