    Accepted Solution

    The most likely cause of this is if a file has been deleted or corrupted.  Repairing the SQL Server management tools fixes this problem?

    Repairing SQL Server is a command-line operation. You can repair by inserting the installation media into the disk drive and typing the following:

    start /wait <CD or DVD Drive>\setup.exe /qb REINSTALL=SQL_Tools90 REINSTALLMODE=OMUS

    You can find more information on installing SQL Server from the command line here:
