SQL SERVER – Fix Error – Package ‘Microsoft SQL Management Studio Package’ failed to load in SQL Server Management Studio

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.
