You might need to be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to perform some tasks.

On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
In the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box, click Add.
In the Add Standalone Snap-in dialog box, click the snap-in you want to add to the console, and then click Add.
You can add additional snap-ins by repeating steps 2 through 4.
To open MMC, click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type mmc, and then click OK.
