Thanks!
Have you upgraded the ArcGIS for Desktop? Then you might need to install the language pack for the version currently installed.
add in a secondary numeric ID field to the table, export ID,Long,Lat, create an event them, then shape file, join the source table to the shapefile using the temp ID field, but Jayanta Poddar 's suggestion would be a definite first go
