I was helping my friend to restore SQL 2008 database via SQL management studio. But when I start SQL management studio, I received the following error:
The type initializer for ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dmf.PolicyStore’ threw an exception. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Dmf)
Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Diagnostics.STrace, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91′ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
Is the above message told there is corruption in installation? and is there any easy way to fix it?
