Microsoft SQL Server: Programming FAQ

Enterprise Manager

Why can't I open a table in Enterprise Manager or Query Analyzer? by leveyp
Posted: 10 Apr 03

When I try to open a table in Enterprise Manager I get error message "The query cannot be executed because some files are missing or not registered.
Query Designer cannot locate your query files and cannot run your query."

Before resorting to re-installing the product try re-registering the following dlls (they may be in different directories depending on your OS/Version)

C:\Program files\Common Files\System\ADO\Msado15.dll
C:\Program files\Common Files\System\Ole Db\Oledb32.dll
C:\Program files\Common Files\System\Ole Db\Sqloledb.dll

To register the DLLs you use Regsvr32.exe

At a command prompt type:

C:\>regsvr32 C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\ADO\Msado15.dll
C:\>regsvr32 C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole Db\Oledb32.dll
C:\>regsvr32 C:\Program files\Common Files\System\Ole Db\Sqloledb.dll
C:\>regsvr32 C:\WINNT\System32\Atl.dll
