I recently formatted my computer and reinstalled my machine and I end up on following error:
Package ‘Microsoft SQL Management Studio Package’ failed to load
I was able to fix the error quickly, but while I was searching online, I noticed quite a few of the people have similar error and they struggle to fix it. I have decided to list a few of the ways to fix the error here.
Method 1: Reinstall .NET Framework
Method 2: Start SSMS with Admin privileges
Method 3: Reinstall SQL client with either command prompt or with wizard
Method 4: Delete the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools and try to load the server again.
Let me know if there is any method which works to fix this error and I have missed it.
