Microsoft Visual Basic: Component Not Correctly Registered

I got this really weird error message while I was reconstructing my Development Environment:
  • Microsoft Visual Basic
  • Component Not Correctly Registered

This occurred because I was uninstalling Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 and re-installing SQL Server 2005 for the purpose of completing some self-paced training kit labs.  As a result, I was no longer able to execute any Excel macros, even after reinstalling all the latest software.

The solution was fairly simple: download and install the Visual Basic Runtime 6.
