    MMC problem with IDS CS3 on x64 Windows 2008 Server

    owen2008

      Hi,

       

      I have installed IDS CS3 5.0.3 on Windows Server 2008 x64. It works fine on the command line and the service starts up OK. However, when I go to MMC and try to add the plug-in to configure my instances, the IDS plug-in is not in the list.

       

      This is not a problem on a 32-bit installation. Therefore I assume it is something to do with 32/64 bit versions of MMC. (I had a similar issue with ODBC configuration, there are two configuration apps installed (32 and 64bit), one has a shortcut in the admin tools and I need the other one)

       

      Can anyone shed any light on this or had the same problem?

       

      And I can't go to CS4 yet.

       

      thanks,

      owen.

          At a command prompt, try:

           

          cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS3 Server

          regsvr32 InDesignServerMMC64.dll

           

          (substituting correct install path, if that isn't right)

           

          Note 'InDesignServerMMC64.dll', not 'InDesignServerMMC.dll' - MMC requires an x64 compiled snap-in when run on an x64 OS.

           

          That should bring up a dialog saying regsvr32 succeeded.You may need to have opened the console window as administrator for that to succeed on 2008 Server.

           

          Then re-launch mmc.exe & it should appear.
