Since I seem to be fighting a losing battle with my other question (re: attaching/detaching difficulties), I'll try something else that's been bothering me...

I get two errors upon starting my local SQL Server:

"Repository enging V3.0 or higher is required to run Meta Data Browser"

"Snap-in failed to initialize. Name: Meta Data Services CLSID:..."

Is this something I can remedy without reinstalling?
