I've been using SQL Server 2008 Express Edition on my development pc for several months now.ÃÂ It has recently started giving me an error when I attempt to run the SQL Server Configuration ManagerÃÂ (SQLServerManager10.msc).ÃÂ I have uninstalled completely and reinstalled twice which has not solved the problem.ÃÂ I can run the Management Studio just fine and everything works, I just can't run the Configuration Manager which is an issue.
Full error message is as follows:
Cannot connect to WMI provider.ÃÂ You do not have permission or the server is unreachable.ÃÂ Note that you can only manage SQL Server 2005 and later servers with SQL Server Configuration Manager.
The specified module could not be found. [0x8007007e]
I have tried the workaround listed here: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/Workaround.aspx?FeedbackID=443459 however I did not have a sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof file in my local install.ÃÂ I copied the one from my production installation and ran the mofcomp.exe program successfully but it did not solve the issue.
