  2. Copy the Idmsnapin.dll file to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft CSF\V3.0\Management\Identity Manager folder.

Note Before you install the feature, the IDM MMC displays the service key for a service catalog instead of the binding key. Additionally, before you install the feature, the application description is not displayed correctly when you add a secondary credential to an application.
