Visual C++ 'Pure Virtual Function Call' when opening SQL Enterprise Manager

I'm getting the following error when I try and open SQL Enterprise Manger in Win Server 2000 (..I know!) This problem never used to occur, and I'm not sure what changed on the system when it started.

Visual C++ Runtime library - C:\WINNT\system32\MMC - R6025 -Pure virtual Function Call

I have tried repairing & even reinstalling the .net framework (1 & 2) installs, and tried installing Visual C++ 2005 redistributable to no avail.

Any ideas please?

I think it's telling you it's time to change for a more recent version (SQL Server and Windows Server) :)

And I don't think SQL Enterprise Manager needs .net framework to work.

It's a customer's server so we don't have any choice over this.

I re-installed SQL server and the problem has disappeared. Not a neat way to solve it but couldn't find any other way.
