I hope someone can help me with this error. When i came in to work this morning i started to get an error when trying to view the "Jobs" in Enterprise Manager. Error Below

Error 22272 cannot load DDL xpstar.dll, or one of the DLL's it references. Reason 126(error not found)

After closing the error box the "Jobs" list does not populate.

I then used Dependency Walker to try to find out which of the DLL's were missing, this brought up:

ieshims.dll wer.dll

as missing so i downloaded these and re ran the program and then different files were missing each time so i stopped.

We haven't had anything like this error before and it seems to have happened overnight.

Any suggestions or help would be excellent.

Kind Regards

Does your SQL server startup account have permission in C:\winnt\system32? –  Nunya Jul 4 '11 at 14:40
Are you running Enterprise Manager on the server's console or on your local workstation? –  mrdenny Jul 4 '11 at 22:32
