"MMC could not create the snap-in"

Anybody get this working?
I've googled to no avail

I've tried the Vista fix, registering a bunch of DLLs, but that didn't fix it.

Bump. Wow, this must be unresolvable. Any alternative solutions? Currently, I'm remote desktop'ing into an XP PC, cause I need AD Users and Computers for work, but I much rather not have to do that and have something working on Win7.

I have installed the RSAT Tools on my Windows 7 Machine and created the ADUAC MMC console

I can access AD ok - but i have limited functionality - Cant change passwords, unlock accounts etc..

Now i have two account and normal user and an admin account. I have logged onto my PC has normal user but i have my admin account on my machine and the UAC set to automatically use the admin account.

If i try to run the MMC with my admin account it faills with an error

Has anybody else seen this problem?

Domain and Forest is Server 2008

Thanks
