More errors after SP3... Re: Error in SQL 7.0 DTS, trying to access local packages
Thanks a lot for the reply. I had no clue where to search and this was of
This is exactly what I did:
First, I am not working on a clean install of NT so that may cause lots of
problems, unfortunately I have no control over that.
I installed SQL7's SP3 on my machine to be in synch with the server I wanted
to work off of. Then, after I did that, i was able to get to the
design view of my DTSs.
But after I rebooted, I wasn't able to get to Enterprise Manager anymore.
As a matter of fact, I get the infamous "Snap-in failed to initialize"
error message. And... I can't get into Query Analyzer, I get "The procedure
entry point SQLGUIGetOS could not be located in the dynamic link library
SQLGUI.dll". Then I tried to reapply SP6a (nothing changed) and MDAC 2.5
This machine I am working on has had potentially lost of things
installed/de-installed/ re-installed and I think it will not be possible
to get it re-staged now. However I may be able to get somebody to de-install
and reinstall SQL 7.0. Is there anybody who has ideas before I have to get
to the reinstall process? Please?
Thanks in advance,
