Win 7 x64 Install issue

Aug 25, 2010 at 8:39 PM

I am trying to install on a Win & Ultimate x64 system. The insatller is failing with "need MMC 3.0" error.

MMC 3.0 is installed. It looks like the installer isn't recognizing that MMC 3.0 is present.

Any ideas on how to solve?

Never happened before.

I have tried now to install NetSqlAzMan SnapIn on a clean Win 7 x64 machine.

Have you installed the .NET 4.0 Framework full ?

Please provide detailed file info of your c:\windows\syswow64\mmc.exe file.

On my Win7 x64 ultimate mmc.exe is:

Version: 6.1.7600.16385

I am running into the same issue and this is the information from MMC I have. I tried both 32bit and 64 bit versions and both gave me the same error;

This setup requires MMC 3.0. Please install MMC 3.0 and run this setup again. Download now MMC 3.0 components

That error seems to be with running it rather than installing and it is with administrative tools. I can't even get it to install.

A monkey-question !


Have you installed the x64 version of the NetSqlAzMan installer ?!

If yes ... try to install the IIS 6 compatibility administrative tools in you system.

I had to run the msi as an admin. That solved the problem if anyone in the future runs into it. You might not have this option when you right click, so you need to add it to the registry.
