View Full Version : How to distribute MMC snap-ins?

Is there a way to dynamically build a MMC console by adding only some snap-ins that my installation package include? Depending what software features are installed, only certain snap-ins should be included in the MMC console.

Hi Scalius,

Try this. Go to start > run. Type in "MMC" and hit ok. This opens the MMC with no snapins. Goto File > Add / Remove Snapins. Use the dialog to add all the snapins you want. Then goto File > Save and save the msc file.

Don't know if that is exactly what your looking for but hope it helps.

Well I would like to build the msc programatically during my installation. If user select Feature X then I want to install Feature X MMC snap-in in my MMC console. If user select Y also, then I would like to add Y too. sometime a user may wish only to install X and not Y in which case I must not add snap-in Y to the MMC console.

I hope I made myself clearer :)
