  • Try openning a command prompt with "run as administrator" and try again.

  • Hello RaSa,

    This is because User Account Control (UAC) might be limiting your capabilities even if you logged on using an account that is a member of the Schema Admins group. You do need to login or start an elevated command prompt using an account that is a member of the Schema Admins group.

    To open an elevated command prompt, click the Start button in the toolbar, type Command Prompt. Then, right-click Command Prompt from the Start menu and click Run as administrator.

    The module "schmmgmt.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80040201

    Install the Active Directory Schema Snap-In

  • Hello Rasa,

    It seems to be "schmmgmt.dll" not "schmgmt.dll". Typo?

    Can you find the "schmmgmt.dll" file in the %systemroot%\System32 folder?

  • Try  "schmmgmt.dll" not "schmgmt.dll".  Plus you should be a Enterprise Admins !!!

  •  Perform the operation on domain controller machine not not windows 7 client machine. Type schmmgmt.dll on a search bar then Run regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll

    You can download RSAT on the Window 7 machine and install.

  • Hi,

    The minimum required requirement for running the command regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll (as administrator on your server) is Domain Admins(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732110.aspx), there is no need to be enterprise admin! After running this command successfully you will get the following message: http://havardkristiansen.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/registerschmmgmt.jpg
    You can then add the Active Directory Schema MMC snap-in, and connect to your domain: http://havardkristiansen.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/mmc_schmmgmt.jpg

  • I am having the exact same problem.

    See detailed document with screenshots via the link below.

    ADSchemaDll_RegistrationIssue-Windows8.pdf

    I have engaged Microsoft Premier Support on this and will post the fix when I recieve it.

    I do not have this problem when registering the Schema Management Snap In on a Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit computer or a Windows XP Professional computer on the same domain.

    It has to be a "Windows 8" thing.

  • Had the same error, but with help of this topic I got it running with this steps:

    - Go to the system32 folder (generally found in c:\windows).

    - Search for schmmgmt.dll (mind the double M, most common made error is you write it with a single M, I also made that error and was the original cause of the problem in my case)

    - Open a cmd prompt (I opened as administrator)

    - enter "regsvr32 " (without the quotes and WITH a space)

    - drag the file you found from de explorer into the cmd prompt editor, this will give you the full path in the cmd prompt

    - press enter to see it registered
