Dear Soumitra Sengupta,
Technical support with MS and Gateway were unable to assist me in accessing the Device Manager on a new Gateway Laptop running MS MCE 2005. I searched Google for "snap-in Creation failed" and found your Blog. After registering DEVMGR.DLL (as suggested), my problem was solved.
Many thanks for your help!!
