    Unanswered: Enterprise Manager launch error

    Not sure what has caused this to suddenly happen, but each time I attempt to launch Enterprise Manager I get the error:

    "MMC cannot open the file C:\MSSQL\BINN\SQL Server Enterprises Manager.MSC
    This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file."

    Now, I've already attempted to reinstall the client tools with no luck. The file does exist, and I have not changed my security settings -- at least that I'm aware of.

    I use EM daily, so I'm perplexed as to why over night it stopped working. Is it possible a Windows Update could have caused this?

    If you have any insight I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    PS. I'm using SQL 7.0 on a WinXP Pro laptop.

    I feel there could be some issue with h/w on the box and may refer to this KBA;en-us;315341 to fix it.

    Ensure to obtain latest service pack for XP also, if nothing works reinstall from scratch.
