Hi EE,

I am getting the error which is described in this article:

However when I apply the 'fix' described I get the following error message:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared>mofcomp
Microsoft (R) 32-bit MOF Compiler Version 5.2.3790.3959

Parsing MOF file: sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof
MOF file has been successfully parsed
Storing data in the repository...
An error occurred while processing item 1 defined on lines 4 - 7 in file sqlmgmp
Error Number: 0x80041003, Facility: WMI
Description: Access denied
Compiler returned error 0x80041001

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared>

What permissions are causing this error to occur?

Any assistance is welcome.

Thank you.
