Microsoft Releases Fix for Disappearing Designer and Enterprise Manager

Microsoft has released a fix for a bug in SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3). When you upgrade to SP3, the Data Transformation Services (DTS) Designer and Enterprise Manager might disappear unexpectedly because of an access violation. Before it disappears, Enterprise Manager might generate an access violation message.


Although Microsoft has a supported fix for this bug, the company is still testing the fix. Therefore, if the bug doesn't severely affect your system, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next SQL Server 2000 service pack, which will contain the thoroughly tested fix.


If you want to apply the fix right away, contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS). You can obtain a complete list of PSS phone numbers and information about support costs at;en-us;cntactms .
