    Unanswered: Files are missing or not registered...files not registered

    Hello,
    I am having a problem connecting to SQL server 2000 through enterprise manager. Whenever i try to look at a table, view or DTS package I get the message...

    "The query cannot be executed because some files are either missing or not registered. Run setup again to make sure the required files are registered."

    I have tried to re-register, unregister and re-register.

    I have tried to create a new instance of SQL server and attach the Data files to this.

    I have tried to Re-install client tools.

    The only option I am left with is totally removing SQL server and re-installing then restoring the Databases from a backup tape...
    I just wanted to know if anyone has anyother ideas before i go ahead and do this.
    Thanks in advance.

    JF

    One more thing...
    I can access all of the tables through access and excel and other data analyzers as I normally would.
