SQL Server job step problem – Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID

While creating a SQL Server Agent job I ran into this error message during the creation of the 2nd or 3rd step.

Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {AA40D1D6-CAEF-4A56-B9BB-D0D3DC976BA2} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: c001f011. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS)

This issue is already been fixed since Cumulative Update 3 – see “FIX: You cannot create, add, or edit steps for an SQL Server Agent job in SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2315727.

In the meantime Cumulative Update Pack 10 has been released. I installed it – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2591746 – and this indeed fixed the issue.
