SMS Snap-in failed to initialize

SMS Snap-in failed to initialize

SMS Snap-in failed to initialize

I made a console for admins to use instead of the entier SMS adminisrator.  When they open the .msc file on their PC running NT4, they get the message "Snap-in failed to initialize".  If they log on at another PC they can open it.  I have been checking Technet, and network properties in NT4.0 with no resolution yet.  We are only using TCP/IP protocol.  The snap-in is version 1.1, and we have at least verion 4.01 SP2 of Internet Explorer.  Anyone have an idea what to look for next?

RE: SMS Snap-in failed to initialize

Check the version of the data access component.

RE: SMS Snap-in failed to initialize

I already have installed the MDAC201 service packs. Some machines can connect, but some can't.  I'm still checking network properties, but no luck yet.
