  • Dear Customer,

     

    If the issue persists, the issue can be caused by the following factors:

    1. Corrupt MMC configuration file
    2. File association for .msc file is corrupt

    I suggest we try the followings to troubleshoot the issue:

    1. Delete Corrupt MMC configuration file
    -----------------------
    The MMC configuration file is located in the Application Data folder that is associated with the user account:

    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\MCC

    Please delete existing files in this folder and a new one will be generated automatically next time when .msc files run.

    Then test if you can directly run a .msc file. Click Start->Run, type eventvwr.msc and click OK. What's the result

    If the issue persists, please try the next step:

    2. Check .msc file association
    --------------------
    a. Right click on a .msc file such as C:\Windows\System32\eventvwr.msc and click Open With->Choose Program
    b. Ensure "Microsoft Management Console" is selected.

    3. Replace the registry key for .msc file association:
    ----------------
    a. On another working Windows 2003 server, open Registry Editor
     
    b. Export the following registry key to a .reg file such as msc.reg

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.msc]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSCFile]

    c. On the problematic server, delete the above registry keys.

    d. Copy the exported file .reg file to the problematic server, and then double click it to import the registry file.

    Then please restart the server and test the issue. What's the result?

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. I will be glad to help.

    I look forward to your reply.

     

    Sincerely,

  • I think this could be caused by system problem of domain controller.(You acn try restart server if possible)

     

    Check if netlogon, sysvol folders , are shared properly on domain controller.(Sometime they could disappear for some reason.Domain controllers need them shared for running domain policy/logon script/authentication stuff.. you need to re-share them if they are missing.

     

    normally [netlogon] local path at

    C:\WINDOWS\sysvol\sysvol\domain\SCRIPTS

     

    [sysvol] local path at

    C:\WINDOWS\sysvol\sysvol\

    After reboot, I can't solve the problem

  • If you found this problem after you cleared the virus.

    This could be caused by something in system was already damaged by the virus.

     

    Here is a suggestion, but may not very good for the system:

    Try create a new user account, put it into administrators , domain admin, enterprise admin group and delegate all rights to that user and try again(Some years before I got simular problem that I can't modify exchange installation, I create a temp account and set these).

     

    The worst case is you may need to restore system state(If you have regularly backup your system state).

  • Hi, Tom !

    I have absolutely same problem as davidfung does, including W32.SillyFDC virus cleaned, so can I report too ?

    My OS is WinXP SP2, can't open any  .msc file (Access denied error). Can run mmc.exe and open them from there, but as soon as another .msc is run from console (gpedit.msc when you open GPO for example) it fails again.

    I want to thank you for your last post, cause point 3 did the job. Branches [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.msc]
     were identical on both problem and good workstations, but replacing the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSCFile] from good WS to bad one made .msc files working again. No restart needed.

    I'm only sorry I didn't save the bad branch to report.

     

    So I assume the reason for this problem was W32.SillyFDC virus that was cleaned but registry changes went unnoticed by Symantec OfficeScan.

     

    Thank you for your efforts,

    Sincerely,

    Andrey Golubev,

  • If it's same issue I was having then it's permissions.  Where ever the MMC is saved you need to make sure you have permissions to that area otherwise the MMC fails (normally with a stupid, meaningless error).
