SharePoint Admin Tool Kit 4.0 installation issue on 32 bit environment

Last week I was trying my hands on SharePoint Admin Tool Kit Ver 4.0 (freely available for download from the microsoft site), this tool has some useful features for Administrators as well as users. Particularly I liked the Permission Reporting tool. Installation on a 64 bit environment went through fine and I could also see the Batch Site Manager (helps with Move, Lock and Delete Site Collections ) in Central Admin Page and Permission reporting links coming up individual site collections, however when I tried to install the same on a 32 bit environment although there were no errors I could not see the Batch Site Manager link coming up in Central Admin Page nor the permission reporting tool links on the Site Collections. This was really strange, no errors!, but at the same time tool is not installed!!

After a lot of digging around, I found the installation is not complete after the exe is run for 32bit environment , thanks to nitman's comment there are couple of steps that need to be run manually, which ideally should have been taken care by the exe itself
To deploy and activate the Batch Site Manager feature

1. At the command prompt, run stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename "C:\ProgramFiles\Microsoft\SPAdministrationToolkit\BatchSiteManagerSolution\BatchSiteManager.wsp" to add the solution file to the farm solution store.

2. Run stsadm.exe -o deploysolution -name BatchSiteManager.wsp -immediate -allowgacdeployment to deploy the solution to the farm.

3. Go to Central Admin -> Operations -> Solution Management, confirm batchsitemanager.wsp status is deployed.

4. Run stsadm -o activatefeature -name BatchSiteManagerLinks to activate the feature.

To deploy and activate the Permission Reporting Tool feature

1. At the command prompt, run stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\SPAdministrationToolkit\PermissionReportingSolution\PermissionReporting.wsp" to add the solution file to the farm solution store.

2. Run stsadm.exe -o deploysolution -name PermissionReporting.wsp -immediate -allowgacdeployment to deploy the solution to the farm.

3. Go to Central Admin -> Operations -> Solution Management, confirm permissionreporting.wsp status is deployed.

4. Run stsadm -o activatefeature -name PermissionReporting to activate the feature.

the run of "stsadm - o activatefeature -name permissionreporting.wsp" is reporting following bug: "Failed to find the XML file at location '12\Template\Features\permissionreporting.wsp\feature.xml

What was wrong?

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or
maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same
subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had a tough time
clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
hints? Thank you!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of
