My first honest reaction when I hear developer, machine, missing things is "What did he do?" Icons and the like for Microsoft applications don't just get up and leave on their own will. Past experience with one of my worst users (namely me) is that he loaded something and later aggressively uninstalled it but removed too much.
He should do a Windows update or re-install to make his OS healthy again. If Analysis Management is still missing once he has restored the missing Microsoft components, then he needs to reinstall the PI components.
thanks for your reply, yes, with a mix of re-logging into the account the issue went away. Interestingly, I had seen a similar thing after I logged in but this does not happen when I log directly into the server in the server room. Remote Desktop seems to either cause or exasperate the issue.
