Hi, has anyone meet with this problem ?
Yeasterday I have installed a new SQL Server 2005 side by side with SQL Server 2000.
The installation worked fine, but as I wish to make a backup of a database running on old 2000 Server through new SQL Server Management Studio this error message appeared:

Property BackupDirectory is not available for Settings 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Settings'. This property may not exist for this object, or may not be retrievable due to insufficient access rights. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&ProdVer=9.00.1399.00&EvtSrc=Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.ExceptionTemplates.PropertyCannotBeRetrievedExceptionText&EvtID=BackupDirectory&LinkId=20476

To be sure, on that link was no help to solve problem !!!!
I have just connected into the old SQL Server 2000 using domain login and with the sa login too, the situation was the same !

Then I tryed to use the old Enterprise Manager, but I was not able to open them, because :

Snapin failed to initialize.
Name: - not available -
CLSID: {00100100-1816-11D0-8EF5-00AA0062C58F}

And my last question is:
Is there any option to set other installation folder at the sql server 2005 setup ? As I tryed change in advanced options to store the instalation files on other fixed disk, after install process has finished all files was placed in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\ with DATA folder too !!!
Stupid Microsoft !!!!

I did it !
It is very simple
SQL 2005 installation has removed key from
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\00100100-1816-11D0-8EF5-00AA0062C58F
I placed them back, and it works ! (Enterprise Manager)


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{00100100-1816-11d0-8EF5-00AA0062C58F}]

I also got the same error while restoring a local copy of SQL Server database.To get rid of this error you need to create a string value and key field in the registry.Name the string field as BackupDirectory and in the value field write the path of the backup directory. You need to create this registry entry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server. For detailed information with screenshots refer this guide. :-)
