Could not load file or assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc

You may receive “Could not load file or assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc” while connection to database.  I got the error when I tried to connect to SQL Server 2005 from Visual studio 2008 using server explorer. The exact error is,

Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91′ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

To solve this error you need to download following three updates from Microsoft.

  • Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Objects
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client

I found the solution form here. Thanks to Ahmed !!!
