"Runas" syntax for shortcut to run SMS.mmc in Win 7 - 64bit

I'm trying to create shortcuts to run the Admin console and an SMS console as another user (with elevated rights).
If I shift-right-click on the shortcuts and manually enter the credentials, all works fine, but I cannot figure out the proper syntax for a 'runas' option in the shortcut in the Target Properties.
This is one of the combinations I've tried (which doesn't work);

C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /username:domain\username "mmc C:\Program Files\SMSADMIN\bin\i386\sms.msc"

I briefly get an error stating that ...sms.msc is not a valid Win32 bit application.

Can anybody assist? Thanks.
