A Crazy Error in Visual Studio 2008


- MS Windows 7
- MS Visual Studio 2008
- MS SQL Server 2005 Express

While trying to add a database from visual studio I got a crazy error about some assembly missing. This link helped me. I just needed to install these packages to integrate VS 2008 with SQL Express 2005:

  • Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Objects
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client
