    Unanswered: SQL 2000 client tools on XP

    Hello,

    I am trying to install the SQL Server 2000 client tools on my XP desktop and after the install I get the erroe message:

    Snap-in failed to initialize

    when I launch the enterprise console.

    I applied service pack 3a but I get the exact same error.

    Any one know how I can fix this?

    Thanks!

    Did you happen to have 7.0 client tools installed before?

    Shouldn't be any 7.0 tools on the machine, I just had it formated and XP freshly installed.

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    I finally got around to this problem and was able to fix it by installing the latest version of MDAC.

    Just thought I'd share in case others run into the same problem.

    And it's very kind of you, because it's all going to archive meaning it's all our own internal KNOWLEDGEBASE!

    Thank you for sharing!
