Cannot open Microsoft Management Console in author mode because of current computer policies

Hello, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

When I type "mmc," I get the following error. I'm logged in as Administrator.

---------------------------
Microsoft Management Console
---------------------------
You cannot open Microsoft Management Console in author mode because of current computer policies.
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

Is this a normal behavior of default Windows 7? If so, how do I launch mmc, or if not so, how can I find the setting which causes this message?

I found the setting restricting the access, which was Local Computer Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Management Console > Restrict the user from entering author mode, Enabled.

When I turned it disabled, I could launch mmc.
