Unfortunately, GPMC need the .NET Framework 1.1 while the Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 includes only .NET Framework 2.0.

GPMC Installation Needs .NET Framework 1.1

You can install .NET Framework 1.1, but you may find error on other web applications. See my previous post, Error on Certificate Services Web Enrollment After Installing .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows Server 2003 R2 x64.

After installing .NET Framework 1.1 and some troubleshooting when necessary, you can install install GPMC sucessfully.

To avoid problems with incompatibility of .NET Framework 1.1, it is recommended for you to install GPMC on client computers, such as Windows XP or Windows Vista. I wrote this post just to show you that actually we can install GPMC on Windows Server 2003 x64 that includes only .NET Framework 2.
