    How to install just Active Directory snap-in on windows xp

    We have several Windows XP running clients on our domain. As my titles says all, I want to install AD users and computer snap-in on one Windows XP Pro running system. Can anyone please tell me how is it possible without installing rest of the Admin tools such as DNS, DHCP, etc.

    Thank you for the helps.

    I think you can do it easily following these steps:
    • Create a taskpad.
    • Start - run "MMC"
    • File - Add remove snapin - add - Active directory users and computers

    OK your way out and save.

    You may also need to put this line in notepad:
    msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=FeADTools /qb

    Save it as a bat file. Put adminpak.msi and this bat file in a folder and run the bat file.Then check the taskpad.

    Thats it. You will be done.

    This was very helpful. I ended up downloading the exe from this location;
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...4-a8dcbacff8e3
    I then found the .bat file creation very helpful.

    Thank you very much.

    Windows XP Pro
    Don't understand what has occured but...
    Recently when I try to move folders to the edge of screen they snap into the corners.
    I can only assume that one of windows updates has installed this foolish feature... I know where I want to locate my folders on the screen!
    It's most annoying as I operate with mutiple folders open at one time.
    Can anyone assist me in disabling this annoying feature?
