Package Load Failure in VS 2008 after installation of SQL2008R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My VS 2008 SP1 installation was working fine till yesterday.  Today, after installing SQL Server 2008R2 edition, rebooting, i tried opening VS 2008 IDE and I got the following error:

    Package Load Failure

    Microsoft.Practices.ServiceFactory.VsPkg.ModelProjectPackage, Microsoft.Practices.ServiceFactory.VsPkg, Version =, Culture-neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' has failed to load properly (GUID = {3A053D7-49A0-4713-A3C4-6161158FB0C4}). Please contact package vendor for assistance. Application restart is recommended, due to possible environment corruption. Would you like disable loading this package in the future? You may use 'devenv /resetskippkgs' to re-enable package loading.

    Can anyone help me with this? The only change to my box has been the installation of SQL2008R2 with SP2 (Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (Intel X86)   Apr  2 2010 15:53:02   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition on Windows NT 5.2 <X86> (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)

    My system is Windows Server 2003, and i have VS 2005,2008 and SQL 2005,2008 and now 2008R2.
