I'm working through Lesson 2: Reviewing Cube and Dimension Properties in the Analysis Services Tutorial. I'm stuck on Step 9 though. Whenever I try to "View Code" on any of the objects in my AS project, all I get is "Package 'Language Package' failed to load." on the first time I try, then "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." every time I try to "View Code" after that. So far, I've only been working through the GUI like the tutorial does, and don't have any code where I could be trying to reference a not-instantiated object. Oh, and if I try to "View Code" on the same object too many times, VS has a seizure, locks up for a while, but works itself out eventually.
Currently, I'm running 32-bit Windows 7 with VS 2010 Ultimate and SQL Server 2012.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Do you have some VS Plugins installed? This could be a problem of the Plugins.
If so I suggest to disable those plugins and then test and trying enable one by one to determine which one is causing those problems.

Nope, I checked the VS Add-in Manager, but it was blank. Unless I have some add-ins that are somewhere else.
Is there anything that I should look up to throw into the thread that might help? I'm not really getting an error in any output, just a little dialog box that opens up. Would it help to mention that my cube and dimensions still open in the Designer just fine, I just can't get the code to pop up at all.
