I'm seeing this error msg (only occurred once) when creating a new query in SSMS:

"failed to connect to an IPC port: the system cannot find the file specified (mscorlib)"

Does anyone know what his means and/or how to troubleshoot it?
Watch Question

From googling, this file seems to be a fundamental part of the .Net library, so at a guess: reinstall the .Net framework.
