Creating an instance of the COM component Error with SSMS

For the 4th time, I’ve tried to open a job step and been prevented with this mysterious error “Creating an instance of the COM component” …  The fix is normally simple, just navigate to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\binn directory and
run the following command (from a DOS box):

REGSVR32.EXE dts.dll

15 seconds later you should get a window stating it was successful.
