SYMPTOMS

You cannot run the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack (Adminpak.msi) on a computer that is running Windows XP without Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Note that Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition includes SP1.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the version of the Dsprop.dll file that is included with Windows XP has been updated. The Dsprop.dll file is included with Windows XP, but it has been changed in Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Administration Tools must use the newer version of Dsprop.dll to run correctly. You cannot install the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack (Adminpak.msi) on a computer that is running Windows XP if you have not applied SP1.
