Running OpsMgr 2007 R2 DBCreateWizard on 64-bit SQL Server

There may be an issue when running the R2 64-bit DBCreateWizard on an SQL server.

You may see the following in the application log:

Log Name: Application

System.DllNotFoundException: Unable to load DLL ‘MOMBIDldr.dll’: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)
at Bid.internalInitialize()

The simple fix is to copy MOMBIDldr.dll from your (hopefully) 64-bit SCOM server to the directory where you copied the SupportTools\AMD64 to and run DBCreateWizard again.

If you are still having issues as I had then check your dbCreateWiz log file from %temp%.

My log file had the following
2:50 PM: CreateDB: Attempting to create OperationsManagerDW on USHUBSQLV14\WHSE_OPSMGR threw the following sql exception Directory lookup for the file “F:\DATA1\OperationsManagerDW.mdf” failed with the operating system error 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).
CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could not be created. Check related errors..
2:50 PM: Database creation failed. The database might have been incompletely created or modified.
2:50 PM: System.InvalidOperationException: An error occurred while trying to create the database on your SQL Server. Check your logs for more information.

    Hello, we tried this and received the error "DbCreate wizard.exe has stopped working"

    checking the %temp$ dir helps immensely. my issue was that i had already installed SCOM DB's once prior to this SQL server and they were still there. Just deleted them and I'm in business.
