As this is a frequently asked question and a popular discussion topic in this forum, I wanted to let people know that we have posted a new Knowledge Base article describing how to use the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack on Windows Vista and the limitations that exist when doing this.
Let us know in this forum or through direct feedback how you get on with this.

This is great information - thanks.
I'd appreciate guidance on which Windows features need to be turned on in Vista to support the Adminpak. I see what appear to be backwards-compatible components listed among the IIS features.
I've also run across a work-around to making the Exchange tabs available in ADUC, which involves manually copying and registering a handful of DLLs from a server with the working MMC add-in. Any comment or helpful hints on that front?

Alternatly you could run CMD as an administrator and launch adminpak.msi from there (which IMHO is much easier than registering the components after installing).
You could also create a shortcut to "msiexec.exe /i adminpak.msi" and launch it as admin.
