sql server 2005 - profiler - "failed to start a new trace"

I have installed SQL Server 2005 in my laptop and testing an ASP application. I want to run the SQL profiler to findout the database activities.

When I open a new trace in SQL Server 2005 profiler, I am getting the rror "failed to start a new trace". I could not get much help in the net. Many places it is referred to SQL Server 2000 and apply a patch.

Can anyone help me to fix this problem? Do I need to download any patches to make this work?

Thanks

Is this service pack for SQL Server 2000 or 2005?

I think this problem was due to the problem with the permissions for the execution of the stored procedure.

I dropped the new user created by me (created after the restoration of data). Using "exec sp_change_users_login 'update_one', 'login name', 'user name' ".

It is working now.

Thanks

I found the problem was the folder specified in the server's TMP environment variable had to much junk in it. After clearing it out, the problem disappeared.
