SQL Prompt 10

Using Layout SQL crashes SQL Server Management Studio

Using Layout SQL causes SQL Server Management Studio to hang and have to use Windows Task Manager to kill the process.

Error text 

System.ApplicationException: Exception within progress task ---> System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop.IVsTextView'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{BB23A14B-7C61-469A-9890-A95648CED5E6}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).

Sometimes without apparent cause SQL Server Management Studio installations can delete the interface that Prompt and Refactor need to get access to the query window.

How to fix

Run the following command from a Command Prompt: 

regsvr32 "%commonprogramfiles%\microsoft shared\msenv\textmgrp.dll"
