Windows server 2008 Administrative tools not loading RRS feed

  • Question

  • I noticed an issue with our Domain Controller Windows server 2008 R2. Some of the administrative tools don't work. When I click on the tool, the cursor changes to busy for few seconds but nothing happened after that. The task manager shows that the tool is on bu I cannot see it. Here are the tools that I noticed having this problem.

    Event Viewer

    Computer Management

    Server Manager

    Share and Storage Management

    Storage Explorere

    Windows server update services

    I have do all the updates and rebooted the server. 

    I noticed when I start any of the above, mmc.exe show up for few seconds in the task manager and goes away

  • Sorry for the late reply. The issue I was having did not show any errors just mmc.exe stopping after few seconds. It turns out it was the latest .NET update, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1. Product Version: 4.7.02558. 

    I uninstalled it and everything works well.
