Due to a lot of requests about this pretty common problem.

Steps you did:

  1. You browsed for a web part:


  2. You selected one and hit “Add”:


  3. You got the error message: “An unexpected error occurred.”


This is a know issue with WSS 2.0 and a hot fix [1] can be requested at Microsoft which corrects this behavior.

I tried this with various customers and we could then successfully add new web parts after applying it.
