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:

http://ndflanagan.wordpress.com/2011/10/02/cannot-show-requested-dialog-when-using-sql-server-2008-job-activity-monitor/

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
