Sql Server Management Studio Express 2005 keeps crashing

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Apologies if this is not the right forum for my topic. I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem I'm having with SSMSEE. Starting yesterday Management Studio Express kept on crashing whenever I tried to use it. When I first start it, everything looks fine but after opening a new query window the interface starts acting funny like some of the icons disappear and white space starts appearing on parts of the window or a rolling bar graphic appears at the top of window . When I try to run a query on the database I'm connected to the program crashes and the send error report dialog box appears. I've tried debugging the problem using visual studio but all I have is an error message:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in Unknown Module.

Additional information: Parameter is not valid.

I've checked the event viewer and the application error records for this issue read:

EventType clr20r3, P1 ssmsee.exe, P2 2005.90.2047.0, P3 443f5ccf, P4 system.drawing, P5, P6 4333aeaf, P7 17e, P8 20, P9 system.argumentexception, P10 NIL.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Management Studio but the problem still persists. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling .NET Framework 2.0 and it didn't help. I have googled for people who have encount

I just installed SQL Server 2008 Management studio Express on my Vista machine.

i tried connecting to local machine using :

Please Help Installing SQL Management Studio (not Express) w/ local SQL Server Express

I have recently formatted my hard drive and over the past few days I've been reloading my software.  I have installed on my machine SQL Server Express 2005 SP3.  I prefer to have SQL Express running on my development machine because that is what my customers primarily use.  I also have a full MSDN license, and I would need to install SQL Management Studio 2005.  However, when I download the SQL Server 2005 Developer ISO from MSDN, and run the setup file I get an error message that states: Installation of Microsoft SQL Server Native Client failed because a higher version already exists on the machine.  To proceed, uninstall the higher version and then run Microsoft SQL Server Native Client Setup. I would assume the problem is that the copy of SQL Server - Dev Edition that is available through my MSDN subscription is using an earlier version of SQL Server 2005 (most likely the version prior to SP1.)  I would just unistall SQL Server Express 2005 SP3 and reinstall it with out any service pack updates.  The problem is that I also see within my Add or Remove Programs list  four SQL Server 2008 R2 entries, that I believe were installed when I installed Visual Studio Pro 2010 (they are, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Data-Tier Application Framework, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Data-Tier Application Project, Microsoft SQL Server 20

SQL Server CE in Management studio express

Can't connect to SQL 2005 Enterprise using Management Studio with Server Name (only (local) works

This is a test system, everything running locally & no domains. Win 2003 Ent. Server & SQL Server 2005 Enterprise. I can't log into SQL Server Management Studio using the server name & using either Windows Authentication or SQL login. If I change the name of the server in the drop-down list to "(local)", I connect just fine (both Windows & SQL security modes). Shared Memory, Named Pipes & TCP/IP enabled in both server & client. Remote connections allowed. I have IP adresses (both & external IP) in my hosts file pointing to the server name. Does SQL require a DNS server? This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I can't install SQL 2005 SP3 due to authentication failure since there's no way to enter (local) as the server name. SQL tools (management studio, SP install) seem to see the SQL server running but won't authenticate the user through any means other than setting server name to (local). This is driving me crazy!!!

Cannot Install SQL Server Management Studio after removing Express edition


I'm trying to upgrade my management studio to the full version, I uninstalled Express edition and started the install for the full version, but I get an error stating "you cannot install this component because it is already installed". I had a word with one of the guys in the office and he said the only way he's ever been able to get round this is by flattening the entire PC and starting again. Obviously I want to avoid that!

Cannot install SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express


I can't get the SQL Server Management Studio to install.  I'm running Windows 7 (32-bit), and have successfully installed the Sql Server 2008 R2 developer edition (from dreamspark.com).  Some of the SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) advanced Properties are as follows:

File Version: 2007.100.4000.0


64-bit OS: No

Service Pack Level: 2

Version 10.2.4000.0

I downloaded the x86 SSMS 2008 express from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=08e52ac2-1d62-45f6-9a4a-4b76a8564a2b

When I execute the download, I get a compatibility issues message stating I must apply SQL Server 2008 SP1 or later before I run SS2008 on my version of windows.  When I run the program, it extracts all the files and then launches the SQL Server Installation Center.

I select the "Installation" option for a new SS stand-alone or add features, which then launches the Setup Support Rules (Passed: 7, Failed: 0, W:0 S:0).  I click OK, advancing to the Setup Support Files stage.  Clicking on install completes (P:10 F:0 W:1 (firewall) S:0), and then clicking on Next brings me to the Installation Type screen. I select the Add Features radio button & click Next, which then brings me to the Feature Selection screen.

It is here where I get stuck because I can't select any
