acctinfo.dll: Additional Account Info in AD

As part of the Windows 2003 Resource Kit Support Tools (download here) came .dll file called Acctinfo.dll. if you register the .dll and load Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) you will find an Additional Account Info tab which contains details including:
  • Password Last Set and Password Expires date and time
  • SID and GUID of account
  • Last Logon, Last Logoff and Last Bad Logon
  • Logon Count and Bad Password Count

To enable the function on computer(s) or server(s) you administrate ADUC from install the resource kit tools or copy acctinfo.dll to %systemroot%\system32 the run the following command:
regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\acctinfo.dll
To remove the additional account info run the following command:
regsvr32 /u %systemroot%\system32\acctinfo.dll

  1. In Windows x64 you must place the file in the folder C:\Windows\SysWOW64\, it is the only solution of this problem. When there was a problem with some dll file missing I've downloaded it from and it fixed my problem.


Correction, question or suggestion, it's all welcome here.
