WSUS Beta 2 MMC cannot open the file WSUS.MSC

I am on Server 2003 SP1 as domain admin and when I go to start or "finish"
installing, it took me to wsus.msc and I got the error below:

Microsoft Management Console
MMC cannot open the file C:\Program Files\Update
Services\administrationsnapin\wsus.msc.
This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was
created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have
sufficient access rights to the file.

I do not know how to update my MMC if thats the case. I set the permissions
to domain admin's as FULL control and administrator@domain.com (my domain) as
full control (which I am logged on as). I set these permissions on wsus.msc

After I downloaded
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en I was able to open the WSUS.MSC
I needed to get MMC 3.0 to open this, if the software would have offered to
update that software, MMC, it would have been great!

Do you not think this post gets found on Google searches?
Perhaps it gets several hundred hits a day or a week or a month from people who are struggling to resolve this issue. At least I have posted some useful information which might actually help someone unlike yourself. Open your mind.

The problem concerned a BETA program which has long since died. You need to
use common sense and open your mind to some current updates. You may also
need to uninstall *your* beta software. You are *still* the king of
techarena illiterate morons!
