Unanswered: SQL Server 2000 Dev Edition - Install Issues on Win XP SP1
I am facing a familiar issue, with a slight variance in the situation. I have already spent hours googling for a solution, so along with the problem I'll highlight what I have already tried to remedy it.
I am trying to install SQL Server 2000 Dev. Edition on my Win XP SP1 platform. I did a default instance installation. I am able to start up the server and keep it up.
On opening the Enterprise Manager I get the error, "SQLDMO.DLL not registered, re-run SQL Server setup etc."
Next I navigated to <install dir>\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn and executed regsvr32 sqldmo.dll and I get the following error, "LoadLibrary("sqldmo.dll") failed - Invalid Access to Memory Location"
I have verified that all the relevant dlls are present in the above and <...>\system32\ folders. I have also created an alias for the server using the client network utility.
There was a time when I had installed SQL Server 2000 previously and I did manage to get it to work, even the sqldmo.dll registeration bit. But uninstalled it subsequently as I was having space issues.
Since then I have installed various XP hotfixes and security fixes, except for Win XP SP2
