  • When do you get that error? What version/SP do you have?

  • This is because of permission problem when your MAnagement Studio starts up. To solve this problem you can try this:

    Check the permission to folder:
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server

    Add full permission for the current user and sql account to this folder.

    I think this would resolve the issue. Else let me know and we can look further.

  • Hi Peter,

    You could try to do a repair installation on the Shared Features only for Management Tools.
    This issue has been resolved in this thread.

    Hope this helps.
