Error opening Activity Monitor in SQL Server 2008 (Management Studio)

I am getting this error (See Attachments) when I try to open the Activity Monitor in SQL Server 2008.
I can open it just fine on another PC with SQL Server 2008 so I assume I am missing part of the install and wondered if someone could tell me what part I am missing.

I found a couple of blog entries explaining this error:


Sounds like it was by design if you have just the SSMS client installed on your PC and didn't install the full software

I went ahead and did a full reinstall and it is working now - Thanks
It does require the full Management Studio Tools not the stripped down version
