Got Win2003 Adminpak on XP and don’t see the Dial-In tab..

by Bharat Suneja

Adminpak installed on XP Pro does not reveal the Dial-In tab on user’s properties.

Here’s how to make it show up :
Registry Entries – copy the following text in notepad and save as dialin.REG (don’t forget to change file type drop-down to All):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00





“{B52C1E50-1DD2-11D1-BC43-00C04FC31FD3}”=”RAS Dialin – User Node Extension”

Then double-click the file or on command prompt type :
Regedit /s dialin.reg

Type the following commands – replace ServerName with a Windows Server 2003 domain controller:
cd /d %SystemRoot%\System32
copy \\ServerName\Admin$\System32\mprsnap.dll *.*
copy \\ServerName\Admin$\System32\rasuser.dll *.*
copy \\ServerName\Admin$\System32\rtrfiltr.dll *.*
regsvr32 rasuser.dll

Now open AD Users & Computers console and check a user’s properties. The Dial-In tab should be there.

Thank you! This has been a pain in the ass for me. I’ve been remoting into the DC just to do this task.
