Hello Jimmy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like the same thing in the location in this tutorial except for those MMC snap-ins instead. You can download and merge the REG file below, then restart the computer to apply to hopefully enable those MMC snap-ins the same way as in that tutorial.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

When you download the .reg file above, you would just double click on it and approve to merge it normally. No need to rename it.

Does it have a .reg file extension (may need to unhide to see) at the end of the downloaded file?

If it doesn't, then rename the the file to add .reg at the end, and try double clicking on the download again.

If it does, then check in Default Programs to make sure that the .reg file extension is set to have it's "Current Default" program as Registry Editor (C:\Windows\regedit.exe). Afterwards, try double clicking on the download again.

This could be a .NET issue. Try cleaning up installed versions of .NET, then download and install afresh. Here are the links.

When you try to install an update for the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5, you may receive Windows Update error code "0x643" or Windows Installer error code "1603"

hi Bill2
Uninstall .NET Framework & ran the .NET Framework cleanup tool. Reinstalled .NET Framework 3.5
Still not solved the problem?

Did you restart the computer afterwards?

If so, then you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you had this issue may be able to help.
