Data Source Configuration Wizard don't display any data source types

My Visual Studio 2008 stops showing data source types on Data Source Configuration Wizard.
When this happens i was working on my project and one minute ago all types were listed normally.

At this moment, i've already repair Visual Studio, .NET Framework and no success.

I've already search on web and no solution at moment.

just read this http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081107125123AAcRsKG hopefully it will help

why don't you define a new object from dataset class to be your data source in the application?
if you need to use your access database in a connected way and you're not using the true power of ADO.NET so it's ok and all you need is a simple connection string not a wizard. and if you wanna use a disconnected database access using ado.net then just define new objects of oledb data adapter and a data set or data table to fill it with existing data. that would be all you need to do to connect your gui to a database, even you can define data bindings in code. check out MSDN for detailed information and if you need a useful website on .NET just visit http://www.codeproject.com .
good luck.

At moment i'm adding SqlDataSource object to my page and then i set it on my way, but this wizard make things faster. That's why i want to be able to use it.

But thanks for your answer, but i'm going to format my machine and solve other problems (performance) that i'm having too.
