SQL Server 2008 R2 Does not Open


  • I have a SQL Server 2008 R2 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise and built a template from that in vmware. When I create a server from template and try to open SQL Server Managment Studio I see the splash screen and nothing happens after that.  I go to check the services for SQL Server but see the below error:

    MMC could not create the snap-in.

    MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.

      Name: SQL Server Configuration Manager

      CLSID: { numbersinhere }

    When I go back and open the original template, everything works fine.  Has anyone experienced this or may know an answer to it?
