Anyone know how to troubleshoot this error?    When opening up a previously saved DTS package...  i first get an error:

- - - - - -
DTS Designer Error           "There was a problem retrieving the list of OLE DB providers"
- - - - - -

I just installed a local copy of SQL Server 2000 Eval Edition on my Windows XP Prof  and cannot get past this error, wondering what it means..

They were probably created with a different version and/or Service Pack to the one you have installed.

To resolve this problem, reregister the "sqloledb.dll" DLL as follows:

1. At a command prompt, change to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB folder.
2. At a command prompt, type the following command:
regsvr32 sqloledb.dll
3. You should receive confirmation that the DLL is registered successfully.

Hope this helps
