CRM 2011, Deployment Manager Error

After installing Dynamics CRM 2011 Beta running the Deployment Manager fails with the following error message:

MMC could not create snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.

Name: Deployment Manager

CLSID: FX:{1ac9de3e-24ae-480d-9e15-65386b76e433}

It seems that this is caused by the program either not requesting or applying elevated permissions incorrectly or not at all.

Running the Deployment Manager as an Administrator resolves this issue. To permanently fix this problem i.e not having to select Run as Administrator every time, right-click the Deployment Manager icon in the Start Menu, Select Properties, Compatibility and Tick Run this program as an administrator. Apply the changes.

I found the solution here. Thanks to Johan Pienaar.
