MMC cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\WF.msc

When I try to open the Action Center, I receive this message. MMC cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\WF.msc

Hello

Thanks for posting the question in the Microsoft Community forums.

According to the description, you get a message of error 'mmc cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\WF.msc' when you try to open the center of the Action.

We will perform the steps and check.

Method 1:


Try to access the Windows Firewall configuration through the console Microsoft Management console.

a. click on start
b. type MMC (right-click and choose Run as administrator)
c. click on file (in the upper right corner)
d. click Add/Remove snap-in software component
e. Select Windows Firewall with advanced settings, in Add Remove snap-ins windows
f. click Add (clicking ok does not make any changes)
d. click OK and you should be able to use the settings of the Console 1 window.

Method 2:

If you are able to use the settings of the firewall through MMC, then scan your computer for corrupt system files.

Perform a SFC scan on your computer. Consult the following link:

  • Windows 2k8R2 - receiving error when you connect (MMC cannot open the file: C:\Windows\system32\ServerManager.msc)

    Windows 2008 R2 - I just started getting this when I connect, and also when I try to manage the machine:

    MMC cannot open the file:
    C:\Windows\system32\ServerManager.msc
    It is perhaps because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you don't have sufficient access to the file.
    It always worked before and work for other users simply not me on this particular area. It is a production company, and I need a quick resolution please. Thanks in advance.

  • I get a message saying "Windows cannot open the file...". »

    I had a lot of problems with infections, so I was running many scanning programs.

    After getting my computer almost completely cleaned, I ran the Super Anti-Spyware program.  We find 3 infections, which I'd delete (I don't have no way of knowing that I removed).

    Since then, whenever I try to open a program, or even Windows Update, etc., I get a message saying:

    "Windows cannot open the file.  To open this file, Windows needs to know what kind of program has created.  Windows can go online to search automatically, or you can manually select from a list of programs.

    When I go on the web, I get a lot of options, which are almost free scans that then charge for fixing.  I am also very scared that I can also get another infection from these sites.

    I hope someone can help me solve this problem.

    Yes, each method is a set of measures to try and then go ahead and try each one separate.

    2 method will reset the executable (.exe) extension that will allow you to open programs. It is not clear what exactly you are trying to open so that it can have no effect.

    Keep in mind that the damage caused by malware can be irreversible, in the case of relocations are necessary.

    Hi JRCLNSIN100,

     

    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    We would like to get some more information from you to help solve your problem. You better, please answer the following questions.

    ·         What is the disk you use to reinstall?

    ·         Is this a recovery or reinstalling the disc you are using?

    ·         When exactly do you get this error message?

    ·         What is the edition of Windows Vista, you try to install?

    ·         How old is the drive that you are using?

    ·         How are you starting the installation process?

    After researching the error 0x8007000D code is essentially due to file corruption and a problem with the drive itself.

    First check if you have scratches or dust on the disc and clean the surface and try again.

    To check if the disk is wrong, you will need to copy the contents of the DVD to the hard drive and try to install using that.

    To perform a flat installation of Windows Vista, follow these steps.

    Note The hard disk must have at least 3 GB of free space on the disk for the Windows Vista installation files. The hard disk must have at least 15 GB of additional disk space to install Windows Vista. For more information about system requirements for Windows Vista, see the Microsoft Web site at the following address:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/Windows/products/windowsvista/editions/SystemRequirements.mspx

    1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc.
    2. Start Windows Explorer.
    3. In Windows Explorer, click to select the drive for the Windows Vista installation disc.
    4. On the Edit menu, click select all.
    5. On the Edit menu, click copy.
    6. Click to select the hard disk you want to contain the flat installation files.
    7. On the file menu, point to new, click the folder, type Windows Vista Setupand then press ENTER.
    8. Double-click the Windows Vista Setup program, and then click Paste on the Edit menu.
    9. Double-click Setup.exe, and then follow the instructions that appear.

    Hello

    1. have you downloaded the right file to library?

    2. What is the file format of the file that you downloaded?

    3. What are the recommendations of programs that provided by Windows?

    4. have you installed the player from the computer program?

    5 is this problem confined to a particular file that downloaded?

     
    The file that you downloaded requires an appropriate program to open it in Windows. That's why I suggest to check again if you have installed the reader program and also check if you have downloaded the appropriate Center books.
