VS2008 to SQL2008 data connections

Jul 8, 2008 at 4:26 PM

Since I upgrade to the SQL2008 RC0 I can no longer add new data sources in VS2008.

the Server Explorer shows the database but the Add Data Sources stops on the Load Data Objects screen, I get the same error box every time.

An unexpected Error has occured: Could not load type.
'Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataDesign.SyncDesigner.SyncFacade.SyncManager' from assembly
'Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataDesign.SyncDesigner.DSLPackage,Version=V9.0.0.0, Culture=Neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'

it seem like this PTK is fairly common.

anyone had a similar experience.

I've had the same exact problem.  Were you able to find a solution?

No joy, I uninstalled RC0 and compounded the problem, now the previous CTP version and 2005 have gone nips-up, and are refusing to re-install, so it looks like a system clean down will be the quickest solution.
