Re: ViEmu SQL installation failing

Good morning,

I got a brand new totally awesome Lenovo T61p laptop with all the goodies a dev would want like 4 GB of RAM and a T7700 Centrino Pro Dual Core processor, etc.  It has Vista on it, but with enough memory I can live with that. 

My problem is that I installed SQL Server 2005 Dev and then went a head and installed the Vi plug-in for it.  Now when I launch the SQL Studio Management app I get this error message:

The Add-in 'ViEmuSQL' failed to load or caused an exception.  Would you like to remove this Add-in?  If you choose eys, you will need to reinstall the Add-in to use it again.

Error Message:  Class not registered

Error Number:  80040154

I also noticed that the plug-in is NOT showing up under my list of installed programs.  What gives?  I've tried answering yes and then re-installing it and the same problem.  I've even went as far as to use the Microsoft clean up utility and install it again and the same problem.

Re: ViEmu SQL installation failing

Hi Aaron,

Apologies for the time it took me to respond here. Can you download the latest version of ViEmu/SQL from http://www.viemu.com ? I implemented some fixes to the installer for Vista (as detailed in http://www.viemu.com/blog/2007/12/22/new-viemusql-version-fixing-vista-install-problems/) and it may fix the problem.
