We installed sql 2005 together with sql 2000. After uninstalling sql 2005, we get this error when opening Enterprise Manager:

Snap-in failed to initialize.
Name: <unknown>
CLSID: {00100100-1816-11d0-8ef5-ooaaoo62c58f}

I already this but still has not worked.

    Hi 1902software,

    there is a KB Article for this sort of problem it only takes care of unloading the orphaned snap-in

    that's probably part of the solution not sure, but if you still miss an item in the management console i would reinstall the tools for SQL 2000. after that its all registered correctly again

    hope this helps a bit
