SQL Server Issues

I put SQL Server on a Windows Server 2003 virtual machine on my new 64-bit laptop but Enterprise Manager would not run.  After some searching, I found a guide that helped me fix the issue.  I had to change permissions on various registry entries in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and then I had to manually register a few dll files.  Quite a number of services and processes had to be stopped during this procedure.

New technology works well with new technology but new technology does not work well with old technology.  My situation here is SQL Server 2000 on Windows Server 2003.  If I was running SQL Server 2005, things would be different.  However, I want to learn more about SQL Server 2000 before I learn about 2005.  I like to know the history of technology and what changes were made in different versions.

Everything seems to be working now.  Problem solved.
