“Value cannot be null” when i connect SQL Server from SSMS

Posted by Karthick P.K on May 26, 2010

I get this below when I connect to SQL Server using SSMS…… What should i do?


Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: viewInfo (Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.SqlStudio.Explorer)


Right click SSMS   “run as administrator”   🙂

If the “run as administrator doesn’t resolve the problem verify if %Temp% environment variable to set properly for the logged on widows account

If %Temp% is not set properly in environment variables we might end up with error.
