I have recently installed windows update on my windows server 2003 machine. After updates when i open sql server 2008, i'm getting a wired error: 'Failed to open connection dialog - object reference not set to an instance of object (Microsoft.sqlserver.sqltools.VSIntegration)'.
I have tried these things to resolve this issue but couldn't get it fixed: 1. Run SQL agent service under 'Local System' account. 2. un-installed sql server updates. 3. Tried to repair sql server 2008, but getting error during repair.
Does anyone came accross with this issue and remember solution for it?
