I have Windows SBS 2003 Premium edition which I thought was all working fine. Went to add a user using the wizard and got the following error message straight away "Unable to run the Add User Wizard. Some required files are missing or cannot be located" I went into AD and it seems that i can add a user from there fine. Is there any reason for this error and how may I fix it? I was thinking of installing SP1 and following the info in the link. "http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/0/f/e0fee8ce-768d-41c0-8871-9bc48e0b3fc3/ToDownLoadFilesandReadInstructions.htm" But if I do this and already have Exchange and Sharepoint at Service pack 1 I don't want to cause problems. Is there a simple way to reinstall the wizards or get them working correctly?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Since you have AD enabled you have to use it to add/remove users.. have you tried using lusrmgr.msc to add the user?

    lusrmgr.msc is only for local user accounts. Therefore it cannot be used on a domain controller and that is what active directory is for. The "Add User Wizard" in server management should still work even if I have AD snap in enabled shouldn't it? I could do this all using AD and create the shared folders myself but I would like the wizard to work
