mmc could not create the snap-in.


After installing KB2416473, while launching MMC it may throw the following error:

 mmc

Here is the complete workaround:

1) If 3.0 is installed ("C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\ServiceModelReg.exe" exists), run the following:
C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\WFServicesReg.exe /r /b
"C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\ServiceModelReg.exe" /i
C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\WFServicesReg.exe /c


2) If 3.0 is not installed ("C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\ServiceModelReg.exe" does not exist), run the following:
C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\WFServicesReg.exe /r /b

    Maybe I installed KB2416473. I was hit by the problem after installing msWindows 2008 (standard, 32 bits) with SP2. After install it needed 64 upates, no problems jet. After the next reboot, there where 8 updates after which the problem arises. Fortunately the above routine suited my needs.
