  1. Dave,
    Just loaded the sql server 2008 service pack 1 and now I get the following error when trying to create or edit a sql file. How do I fix this?



    Cannot create an editor.


    Object reference not set to an instance of an object. (SQLEditors)

    Program Location:

    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.Editors.EditorFactorySql.CreateEditorInstance(IServiceProvider serviceProvider, Boolean storeActiveConnIfNeeded, String moniker)
    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.Editors.EditorFactoryBase.Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.IVsEditorFactory.CreateEditorInstance(UInt32 createFlags, String moniker, String physicalView, IVsHierarchy hierarchy, UInt32 itemId, IntPtr existingDocData, IntPtr& docViewIntPtr, IntPtr& docDataIntPtr, String& caption, Guid& cmdUIGuid, Int32& result)


  2. Thats nothing, after installing SP1 every time I logon explorer.exe doesn’t start – so I have a nice blank screen to work with!

    Using Windows Server 2008 Standard x64.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Cheers, Rich


  3. Is this stuff ever tested? I mean, really. You guys fix one thing and break two more. Now I need to create a live id, register at connect.microsoft.com and create a dashboard just to submit a bug report.

    Otherwise, I google for an answer only to find that not only are other people having this issue, but that the only solution your “engineers” can spout is “uninstall and re-install”.

    Now I need to take time out of my day, pushing my deadlines back just to fix what you broke.
