I currently have the 64-bit versions of SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008R2 installed on Windows 7, 64-bit. The 05 version works fine. I can even see the DBs on the 20008R2 server instance when using SSMS-05. However, I cannot even
begin to open SSMS-08R2. It crashes immediately. The event log shows a problem with kernelbase.dll.
I have tried to repair the installation, have uninstalled and reinstalled, but the problem remains. This is the latest in my problems with 2008R2. Originally, I had a problem wherein it crashed after selecting a server to connect to because
it could not read the registered servers, and I was never able to fix that either. Now I don't even get that far.
Searching for kernelbase.dll, I find that I have two versions on my machine: 6.1.7600.16385 and 6.1.7601.17514.
