Workspace Creation Error 20485 Class not registered

  Asked By: Nirmal    Date: Sep 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 15967

I am running SPS w/out SP1. I have recently installed the import and
export tools from the Resource kit. I want to create a new portal
but now I can not. When I try to create it, during the creation
process an error pops up - "Class not registered". The sharepoint
portal creation fails. I checked the event log and find - Event ID:
20485, with discription "Workspace Creation - An index could not be
created. Class not registered."

I found in one of the support pages a suggestion that to fix this
problem, make sure that the Default Web Site in IIS has the IP
Address set to (All Unassigned). I did and it was already set
correctly. Retried portal creation - still no luck.

I am trying to avoid rebuilding SPS and IIS. This problem may be
related to import or export tool installation. Perhaps a bad DLL?

We're experiencing the same problem, 'class not registered' box pops up.
Installed SP1 and still having the same issue.

Are there any issues with doing a 'repair'? Our production DB is large
(5G) and I want to make sure we don't run into any problems.
