MMC error in IIS

Published February 1, 2010 by Siva

If you get the following error while opening IIS,

MMC could not create the Snap-In

Then execute the steps given below to fix this issue.

1. Register the .dll files “mmcndmgr.dll” and “inetmgr.dll”

Commands:

i)  Start | Run | cd  %SystemRoot%\system32

Here, ‘SystemRoot’ refers ‘C:\Windows’.

ii) regsvr32 mmcndmgr.dll

iii) regsvr32 inetmgr.dll

Tips:   ‘regsrv32’ is a command line tool to register the .dll in the registry.

2. Uninstall and Re-install IIS
To uninstall, Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove Windows Components | Check ‘Application Server’, click ‘Details’ | Uncheck  ‘Internet Information Services’  | Click ‘OK’

To install, Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove Windows Components | Check ‘Application Server’, click ‘Details’ | check ‘Internet Information Services’ | Click ‘OK’

Now you can access IIS without any error.
