I have a Windows 10 Pro workstation which is on a local domain and connected to various servers. I use VS2015(Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2015) for developing in-house windows form applications for various departments. I noticed today that when I use the SQL SOE (SQL Server Object Explorer) when I have a solution or project open it does not function and errors out. If I open VS 2015 and then use the SQL SOE, it works fine.
The following is a screenshot of what it looks like when it functions correctly.
This image is what it looks like when it is not working, it says it is connected but it won't show any data or let you interact with it from the SQL SOE.
Funny thing is that when I have a solution open, even though I cannot see the objects from the server, I can still do a successful query! See!
But if I open VS2015 open the SQL SOE and start browsing before I open a solution, I can see the server objects. But If I try to use one I get the following error:
Does anyone know how to fix this issue or have had a similar problem? If so how did u fix it?
