Yesterday I ran into an issue with SQL Server Management Studio (2012). I was using it on my laptop with Windows 7 installed.
Whenever I wanted to connect to a database I got the following pop-up and nothing could be done with the database I connected to. Opening databases or security also gave me the same pop-up with an error in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Platform.WindowManagement:
After a thorough search I came to an MSDN message that suggested the following:
- Try installing the following Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package
- Then apply SP1 for Visual Studio.
