  Microsoft Management Console (MMC)


The Microsoft® Management Console (MMC) component is a framework for administering Microsoft Windows®-based environments. MMC provides a simple, consistent, and integrated administration user interface and administration model.

You can use MMC to create, save, and open administrative tools, called consoles, which manage the hardware, software, and network components of your Windows system. If an application uses MMC to host its management tasks, then the application provides a console with snap-ins, which are dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). Event Viewer is an example of an application using the MMC framework in this way.
