Hello,

After installing NetSqlAzMan the Exchange Management Console stopped working, it just wont display any data, or crash with a System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException. Same situation on Win7 x64 and SBS2011 x64. The exchange server itself is working, and I can still without any problem access settings via the power shell. 

After uninstalling NetSqlAzMan on my Win7 machine it all worked again instantly. I couldnt get the exchange management console running on the server again.

Has anyone experienced the same issues?

Hi,

NetSqlAzMan needs some configuration into the c:\windows\syswow64\mmc.exe.config file …

Try to rename this file and run again the Exchange console to see if is this causing the issue.

Regards,

Andrea.

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I cannot find a mmc.exe.config file in SysWOW64 or System32 .. 

I found many indications on the internet that the configuration file would be the one to blame .. 

Will try to restart another time in the evening.
