    Vista and the adminpak.msi

    I can't seem to get the adminpak installed. I downloaded the Windows Server
    2003 Service Pack 1 Administration Tools. I've seen some posts regarding
    having to register DLLs to get it working, but I can't even get that far.
    When I try to run the installer, it says:

    Windows Server 2003 Service pack 1 Administration Tools Pack can be
    installed only on computers running either Windows XP Professional (with
    either Q329357 or Service Pack 1 or later applied) or Windows Server 2003
    (with the same Service Pack as that of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1
    Administration Tools Pack).

    And that's as far as I get. Anybody else have this problem?

    Thanks!

    A new adminpak was released with SP2? Do you know where I can get it? I've
    searched and searched and can't find it.

    Thanks!

    Hello Brion,

    Download service pack 2 and extract it. Under i386 you can find adminpak.msi
