After downloading and installing the Remote Sever Administration Tools (RSAT) in Windows 7 the Dial-in tab is missing in both the Active Directory Administrative Center (ADAC) (See figure 1 ).and Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) (See figure 2 ).

To add the Dial-in properties tab, copy the following files from a Windows 2008 R2 x64 server to the Windows 7 Desktop.

C:\Windows\System32\mprsnap.dll

003-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\rasuser.dll

004-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System\rtrfiltr.dll

005-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\en-US\mprsnap.dll.mui

006-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\en-US\rasuser.dll.mui

007-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\en-US\rtrfiltr.dll.mui

008-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

Once you have copied the files to your desktop, copy the files to the appropriate C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\System32\en-US folder.

Open the Command Prompt with Administrative rights type the following command (See figure 3).

regsvr32.exe rasuser.dll

 009-Command-Prompt-with-Administrative-rights

Figure 3

Ensure a dialog box opens the rasuser.dll was successfully registered (See figure 4).

010-Command-Prompt-with-Administrative-rights

Figure 4

If you have either ADAC or ADUC open you will need to close and reopen the tool.  The Dial in Tab is now available in the user property in both the Active Directory Administrative Center (See figure 5) and the Active Directory Users and Computers (See figure 6).

Until next, time Ride Safe!

    Script should also copy the DLLs to SysWOW64 in order for the regsvr32 command to work on Win 7 64bits.

    This did not work on 64x for Win 7…is there more for this system?

  6. Avatar James

    Thanks for this, it worked.

    You do have one typo here C:\Windows\System\rtrfiltr.dll

    Should be System32. Took me a minute to figure it out.

    That worked for me as well. However, as Kevin pointed out, the listed file names still don’t match the screenshots. mprsnap.dll.mui is listed 3 times.
