Failed to load msxmlsql.dll is SQL Server 2005

Now, there are a plethora of posts about it, and two of them really stand out:

Also, you will find many blog posts suggesting to attempt a repair of the MSXM 6 (currently, at Service Pack 2).

I have another one to add to this: if the msxmlsql.dll file is where it supposed to be, namely: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared, and, of course, it is at the correct version level, it wouldn’t hurt to go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared\Resources\1033 and look for the msxmlsql.rll.

In our particular case, it was missing, therefore… well, not working:-).

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
