How can I install specific applications from the Windows .NET Server (Win.NET Server) and Windows 2000 Administration Tools pack?

A. Microsoft supplies the Win.NET Server and Win2K Administration Tools pack as one Windows Installer file (i.e., adminpak.msi). Executing the Windows Installer file installs the whole toolset to your machine. To install individual tools, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the command prompt by going to Start, Run and typing
  2. Navigate to the folder that contains adminpak.msi.
  3. Type
    msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=<Short code for the tool> /qb
    For example, type
    msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=FeADTools /qb
    for the Active Directory (AD) tools.
  4. Close the command-prompt session.
