Bug #: 50000362 (SQL Hotfix)

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:

  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package

  • The prerequisites for installing this hotfix package

  • Whether you must restart the computer after you apply this hotfix package

  • Whether this hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package

  • Whether you must make any registry changes after you apply this hotfix package

  • The files that are contained in this hotfix package

Symptoms


Consider the following scenario:

  • You install Microsoft Office Excel 2007 on a computer that has SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services installed.

  • You use SQL Server Management Studio or SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) on the computer.

In this scenario, you may receive one or more of the following error messages:

Error message 1

Unexpected error occurred: 'Error in the application.'

Error message 2

Unexpected error occurred: 'Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.'

Error message 3

Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt. (msmgdsrv)

Error message 4

The designer cannot display calculations because there are one or more syntax errors in the MDX script. To display these calculations, resolve the syntax errors by switching to Calculations view, clicking Script View on the toolbar, and then editing the MDX script.

Error message 5

The syntax check failed with the following message:
'Error in the application.'

Error message 6

Error in the application. (msmgdsrv)

Error message 7

Query preparation failed.

The following operations are known to trigger these error messages:

  • Using SQL Server Management Studio
    You try to create a new role or edit an existing role for a SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services database. In the Create Role or Edit Role dialog box, you follow these steps:

    1. Click Dimension Data in the left pane.

    2. Click the Advance tab in the right pane.

    3. Click Check.

    Additionally, the same error messages may occur when you follow these steps in the Create Role or Edit Role dialog box:

    1. Click Cell Data in the left pane.

    2. Click the Advance tab in the right pane.

    3. Click Check.

  • Using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio
    You create or open an Analysis Service project. In the cube designer, you perform one of the following operations:

    • Click the Calculations tab

    • Click the Actions tab, and then perform operations where Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) syntax check is invoked

    • Click the KPI tab, and then perform operations where Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) syntax check is invoked

    • Click the Perspectives tab if calculations are present in the cube

    • Click the Translations tab if calculations are present in the cube

    Additionally, the problem occurs when you use the Report Server Project Wizard to create a report that uses an Analysis Services data source. In the Report Wizard dialog box, you perform one of the following operations:

    • Click Query Builder, click Add Calculated Member in the Query Builder dialog box, and thenclick Check in the Calculated Member Builder dialog box

    • Click Query Builder, build a query, and then click OK

Cause

This issue occurs because a newer version of the Msmgdsrv.dll file is installed when you install Office Excel 2007. To perform the operations that are mentioned in the "Symptoms" section, SQL Server Management Studio and SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio load an earlier version of this file. The newer version of this file is incompatible with the older version of this file.

Prerequisites

You must have installed the original release version of SQL Server 2005 to apply this hotfix.

Restart information

You must restart the computer if the installer has to replace files that are being used. To avoid restarting the computer, close all SQL Server Analysis Services tools and clients. Additionally, you must stop Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) if the server is configured to provide HTTP access. If you have installed SQL Server Analysis Services as a named instance, you must also stop the SQL Server Browser service. You must stop this service because the Msmdredir.dll component of this service is updated when you apply this hotfix.

Registry information

You do not have to change the registry.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2.

More Information

This hotfix changes the functionality of the Msmdlocal.dll file. After you apply this hotfix, the Msmdlocal.dll file will first try to load the Msmgdsrv.dll file from the same directory where the Msmdlocal.dll file was loaded from. Additionally, this hotfix installs a compatible version of the Msmgdsrv.dll file to the locations that are used by SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio and by SQL Server Management Studio.


This problem occurs in both the original release (RTM) version of SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 (SP1). The version of the hotfix package that you should request depends on the version of the tool that you are running.


If you are running the original release version of SQL Server 2005, you must request the hotfix package for version 9.00.1557.

If you are running the SP1 version of SQL Server 2005, you must request the hotfix package for version 9.00.2199. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    The SP1 version of these components is 9.00.2047.00 or a later version.

For SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio, follow these steps:

  1. Start SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio.

  2. On the Help menu, click About Microsoft Visual Studio.
