  • Hi gil111,

     

    It is possible the registry key value is incorrect. Please perform the steps below to check this issue:

     

    Step 1: Backup registry key

    ==================

    1. Click Start, click Run, input "REGEDIT" (without quotation marks) in the Search box and press Enter.

     

    (Click Yes when User Account Control message pops up.)

     

    2. Navigate to the following registry key by expanding the "+" beside the registry tree in the left pane:

     

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell

     

    3. Right click on "Shell", click "Export"; please name the file as "RegBackup" (without quotation marks) and then save it to the C:\ drive as a backup.

     

    Note: In case we need to undo the modification, we can double click this RegBackup.reg file to restore the registry key.

     

    Step 2: Import the registry key

    ==================

    1. Click Start, click Run, input "Notepad" (without quotation marks) in the Search box and press Enter.

    2. Copy and paste the contents between the "**************" line listed below into the Notepad:

  • It did not solve the problem and I have no error message

    I think that i have figured the problem
    The problem in CompMgmtLauncher.exe file is that it doesnt open even manually
    I tried to copy this file from another system and to paste on my machine but it gives me a message that I dont have Administrator privileges even though I am a administrator user

    how do i solve this problem ???

  • Hi gil111,

     

    I agree with you that the issue can be related to the CompMgmtLauncher.exe file. If you would like to replace the file from another computer, you may first take ownership of this file. To do this, please refer to the steps below:

     

    1. Go to C:\Windows\System32, right-click CompMgmtLauncher.exe, click Properties.

    2. On the Security tab, click Advanced button.

    3. On the Owner tab, click Edit… button.

    4. Choose your user account which have the administrator privilege.

    5. Click Apply, OK.

    6. Close CompMgmtLauncher.exe Properties window.

     

    7. Right-click CompMgmtLauncher.exe, click Properties.

    8. On the Security tab, highlight Administrators listed under "Group or user names" and then click Edit button.

    9. Highlight Administrators, click Full Control under Allow section.

    10. Click OK.

     

    Please see if the issue can be resolved now.

     

    Thanks,

  • gil111:

    First boot your computer in Safe Mode and see if the problem persists. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, tap F8 before the Windows 7 loading bar appears and choose "Safe Mode" from the menu.

    If the system is working fine in Safe Mode, perform a clean boot until you find the culprit:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135/en-us

    If the problem persists even in Safe Mode, restart your computer and perform these steps in "normal mode":

    Press Win+R to open the Run command box, type this command and press ENTER:

    "%SystemRoot%\system32\mmc.exe" "%SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc" /s

    If the result is the same, maybe there is a problem with a component of Windows 7. I usually solve this kind of problems using Process Monitor:

    Download Process Monitor from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx and run it. With Process Monitor open, try to run CompMgmtLauncher.exe. Wait a few seconds (until you see that Computer Management won't open), bring the Process Monitor window to the foreground and press Ctrl+E (or click the magnifying glass) to end the capture. Now click File, Save to create a PML file.

    You can compare this PML trace log with another trace log taken from a system that is working fine. Or you can upload it to SkyDrive and I'll take a look. (Compress the file in a .zip file before.)

    Good luck!

  • And what if I tell you that I'm having the verty same issue right now and I have no a-squared Anti-Malware 4.5 installed and never even heard of that software.
    Even more. Not only can't I open computer management snapin through right-clicking Computer and Selecting Manage but also recently created rdp entries (which are listed on the dynamic pane that is opened when hovering over a black arrow next to Remote Desktop Connection shortcut in start menu) won't open either.
    Going compmgmt.msc through the Run or Search works just like it sould to.
    Going Administrative tools -> Computer Management works too.

    Looks like the problem is in CompMgmtLauncher.exe.

    Maybe another third-party context menu handler is causing your problem. Read this article to know how to use the tool ShellExView to isolate the faulting extension:

  • Hi,
    Thank you for your reply. It was really helpful. The problem with non-working management snapin solved. The contex menu handler of PowerISO caused the problem.

    But I still can't open RDP when clicking shoirtcuts on dynamic pane containing recently opened RDP connections.

    I would really appreciate if you could advice something on this one.

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hi,
     I'm having tha same problem. I can't right click on computer > manage and get anything to happen. I tried everything listed here but nothing works. Well, if I type "%SystemRoot%\system32\mmc.exe" "%SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc" /s in the run command it comes up and going through admin tools to comp management also works but that doesn't solve my problem.

    To list what I have done...
    Only have MSE running for malware protection
    Imported the reg key as above HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell
    Did a clean Boot - Tried in safe mode as well
    Downloaded shexview and disabled the only 2 non-microsoft context hadlers
    Changed permissions as above on
    CompMgmtLauncher.exe

    Running Win 7 Ultimate 64bit (Houseparty edition and had my party tonight :-)) No other issues to date with beta or RC.

    Edited to add that this had worked previously. I have another issue with an ide drive, connected via usb, not showing up as intialized in disk manager. This is how I accessed disk manager(from right clicking computer>manage). I plugged the drive into an XP box and it all worked as expected so I deleted boot items from C: on the external drive and tried again on Win7 and my rightclick method of accessing disk manager went away. The same problem persists on the external drive not showing up properly but that is secondary to my problem here.

    *Sigh* More problems. I cant seem to merge the backup registry settings I made earlier. I get an error about windows using a file or process. Also now I can't adjust my backup settings. The link to change settings does nothing when clicked. I tried to turn off backup and then turn it back on again but now the link to turn it back on also does nothing.

    I've done as you suggested using a known good CompMgmtLauncher.exe file from another windows 7 x86 system to a windows 7 x64 system (Am I correct in assuming that this file is not different in either 64-bit and 32-bit systems?).  This has corrected the issue of the right click manage not working.  Should I restore the original "ownership" settings?  If so how.

  • Hi CompMgmtLauncher.exe seems to execute the hard-coded path C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\Computer Management.lnk (or wherever your System-wide Start Menu is).  If you have moved or deleted this shortcut CompMgmtLauncher.exe will silently fail.

    I had the same issue on two Windows 7 machines. I was not aware about any installations (which could possibly affect the context menu handlers), the mmc + Computer management snap-in worked, Administrative Tools/Computer Management worked etc., just the right button on Computer didn't.

    The cited .lnk post helped, in a way: the shortcut was there, but doubleclicking the .lnk worked while running it from commandline didn't. Well, in my case it was caused by the HKCR\lnkfile\IsShortcut entry being renamed to stop showing the arrow on top of icons for shortcuts... after renaming it back to its original name IsShortcut, the Manage context menu item works again (as well as using and .lnk from the command prompt which didn't work either but I didn't notice that until now) :-)

    So now the original question came back - how to prevent shortcut icons being displayed with the arrow? Obviously, the above mentioned registry hack is not without sideeffects... (but that does not belong to this thread)

    Open Notepad

    Paste this into notepad:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

    Save as ManageFix.reg

    It changes the manage shell

    %SystemRoot%\system32\CompMgmtLauncher.exe

    To

    "%SystemRoot%\system32\mmc.exe" "%SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc" /s

    I Hope This Helps

  • Hi ,

    Here is another fix :

    Go to

     RUN\REGEDIT\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

    You should get this as value in the right window :

    %SystemRoot%\system32\CompMgmtLauncher.exe

    Make a double - click on the value ( default ) and change it to

    mmc %SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc

    That's it , you should be done .

    If the cause is a bad context menu handler, you can diagnose which application may be causing the problem using FileTypeVerifier.exe, a tool included in the Windows 7 SDK.

    Download the tool corresponding to your computer architecture from here: http://cid-921ae32373defa5b.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/.Public/CPLLinksBroken.

    Double click the executable file. Choose Document. Drag any .txt file to the Drag Here target (a blank text file suffices) and wait for the report to be generated.

    Save and open the report file and see whether the following error appears under "Verb Handlers":

    "IContextMenu::InvokeCommand implementation of the following handler is incorrect. It shouldn't return SUCCEDED because it doesn't own the verb passed in."

  • First of all, thanks a lot.

    Im not sure if I understod it right:

    In case it was a context menu problem, wouldn't it mean that it would still work if I launched c:\Windows\system32\CompMgmtLauncher.exe directly, rather than going through the "My Computer" context menu? I already tried by launching the exe itself, it didn't work. Anyway, since I have no idea at all, I did as you suggested, and here you have a quote from the log, and the whole log itself in case there was such a need (it looks nasty, is it normal? :S):

  • I'm having this very problem. I managed to solve it via changing the context menu access in the registry as proposed here by someone:

    "In the Command below

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

    Put: "%SystemRoot%\system32\mmc.exe" "%SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc" /s

    Computer Management Console will work fine."

     

    But I'd still like to fix the problem properly, adjusting whatever I have to adjust to fix CompMgmtLauncher.exe

     

    The logs I got running this proccess monitor (Logfile_ok.csv from an vmware running the very same Windows 7 as the host machine that doesnt work. Logfile_corrupt.csv from the host machine, not working) you were speaking about, are to be found here:

    http://uc4r8g.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pWhf138pmcnYNDKIJI6HEy3WGX_P0aTEJEauRj8DqM-eHT5rkHgYe8fZsGv-8QY8jHC3ktYZ0siOVqamZzD-wekCIX1wWiw3F/log%20compmgmtlauncher.zip?download&psid=1

    I'd be very grateful if you could tell me whats wrong.

     

    Thanks, anyway

     

    Thanks a lot :)

    If the cause is a bad context menu handler, you can diagnose which application may be causing the problem using FileTypeVerifier.exe, a tool included in the Windows 7 SDK.

    Download the tool corresponding to your computer architecture from here: http://cid-921ae32373defa5b.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/.Public/CPLLinksBroken .

    Double click the executable file. Choose Document . Drag any .txt file to the Drag Here target (a blank text file suffices) and wait for the report to be generated.

    Save and open the report file and see whether the following error appears under "Verb Handlers":

    "IContextMenu::InvokeCommand implementation of the following handler is incorrect. It shouldn't return SUCCEDED because it doesn't own the verb passed in."

  • I tried the manage.txt to manage.reg solution but it eventually does not work on my computer except renaming like usual files. It remains as a .txt file. 

     

    So I tried the Process Monitor solution, would you help me to read the .PML file I created using Process Monitor? 

    Here's the link:

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi ,

    This is where you will probably find the fix and solve your issue :

    Manage - Fix "File does not have a program associated"

    Good luck !

    Best regards ,

  • Hi Fanaudi,

     

    I Appreciate your update buddy, it worked for me:) Happy new year:)

    Saturday, December 31, 2011 12:47 PM

  • Hi ,

    Here is another fix :

    Go to

     RUN\REGEDIT\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

    You should get this as value in the right window :

    %SystemRoot%\system32\CompMgmtLauncher.exe

    Make a double - click on the value ( default ) and change it to

    mmc %SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc

    That's it , you should be done .

    Regards ,

    Fanaudi .

    Thanks Fanaudi, it's work for me ;)

  • Thank you! THIS worked for me.


    Beware the Backstab!

    Monday, October 15, 2012 11:56 PM
  • Thank u sir. It worked on my system. Now I can access "Manage" via right click on "My Computer".

  • Even though this appears to be an old post... it works perfectly for Windows 8 Professional as I was having the same exact issue.  Right click on "My computer" select "manage" and get an error that the file could not be found.

    I tried the import/export of registry keys and making one in notepad and none of that worked.

    Then I found this simple solution, and could not be happier!  Thank you for posting this and for others, again, this does work for Windows 8 Pro, 64 Bit.

  • This fixed the same problem in Windows 8 Pro for me too. So what is "CompMgmtLauncher.exe" anyway when "compmgmt.msc" is really what works? The user account "TrustedInstaller" is the only one with permissions on the file (CompMgmtLauncher.exe) too. I can't rename this file as an admin either...

  • Something that helped me with this issue was to check to insure that Administrator Tools folder is in the Start Menu/Programs folder. If not, copy it from the All Users account. Make sure to give yourself admin rights to the folder. This may help when the right click produces no results.

  • Didn't work for me ... still getting this error message ...
