Symptom


When you run the System Center Operations Manager 2007 DBCreatewizard utility on a 64-bit operating system you may receive the following BadImageformatException:

System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Mom.UI.Wrappers, Version=6.0.4900.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

Cause


When the DBCreateWizard and associated DLL's are copied from the SupportTools folder of the Service Pack 1 (SP1) media, the DLL's copied are not those for a 64-bit Windows OS. The associated DLLs include:
  • Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.UI.ConsoleFramework.dll
  • Microsoft.Mom.UI.Common.dll
  • Microsoft.Mom.UI.Wrappers.dll
Resolution

Update Information

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest version of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007. For more information, refer to this Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/operationsmanager/en/us/how-to-buy.aspx

Workaround Information

Clicking Continue appears to succeed in creating the database without further issue but doesn't allow a reset of the security group to a non-default value.  To fully resolve the issue, copy the associated DLL files from the Operations Manager installation folder on a x64/amd64 machine on which the Operations Manager 2007 SP1 Console is installed.
