Hello. All of a sudden I'm getting this error. Is it something I should be taking action on? I have SBS2003 R2 (recently upgraded from SP1).

Thanks

Do you think you might have been able to provide a bit more information?  Or is this a test of my crystal ball?

Please post the entire event error message.

Thanks.

Jeff, took a look at this, this KB article probably applies to the full version of SQL, whereas I'm running Express Advanced Edition, in that I can't find the DLL or even folders named by the article - am reluctant to guess, so I'll try to do some more research ...

Well, I think you're right... and I'm not sure that I have much else up my sleeve on this one.  For now, I'd watch it to see if it persists.  You could try reinstalling your upgrade again to see if that resolves the issue.

Jeff, basically followed the advice in the KB article but modified it and enabled the permissions for the DLL that had *ctr* in it, and the bin folders ... everything seems fine now. Thanks.
