JSI Tip 4697. How do I install specific administration tools from Adminpak.msi?

In tip 4404, we installed the entire Windows 2000 Adminpak.msi.

To install selected tools, open a CMD prompt and copy the Adminpak.msi file to the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. Then use the following syntax:

msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=Abbreviation /qb

where Abbreviation is case sensitive and chosen from the following table:

If you receive Internal Error 2711, you typed the command incorrectly.
