SSO Application Configuration tool issues

SSO Application Configuration tool is a nice and easy tool to manage our configuration parameters in SSO, however the installation on Windows 2012 and Windows 8 could have some strange issues, below all strange possible messages and behavior I have seen:

Error 1001. Error 1001. Company Name is a required field.


Cannot delete a subkey tree because the subkey does not exist.

After the installation, open the MMC and you don’t see any affiliate application.

After the installation, open the MMC and you try to set a new key but it doesn’t work or it doesn’t save the data.

For each of these behavior we need to fix registry, assembly redirection, looking on the web to remember what we need to do and other, but at the end we’ll can use our Snap in.

Avoiding to repeat the next time the same experience, I prepared a quick way to install it.

Download the original Microsoft SSO tool installation package from here and install it.

Download this zip file from here and decompress it.


Copy the [SSO Application Configuration] directory under [C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Services] and overwrite all.

Import SSO.reg using regedit.exe or simply double click on SSO.reg file.

Add your user in SSO Administrator and SSO Affiliate  Administrator group.

Open [SSO Application Configuration.msc] in  [C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Service\SSO Application Configuration] directory.

That’s all.
