An error occurred while executing batch

Posted: November 8, 2009 in SQL Error Messages, SQL Server 2005, SSMS

I ran a query which resulted in this:
An error occurred while executing batch. Error message is: The directory name is invalid.

The reason for this was an invalid temp directory. The system was pointing at c:\temp but the directory did not exist. I re-pointed all the temp and tmp environment variables at the real temp directory and all was well again.
