SQL Server 2005 Management Studio: attempted to read or write protected memory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,
    After extensive research I still could not figure out why I am getting this error on my SQL 2005 management studio, it starts fine and works for a while but expectedly start showing up this error and it keeps coming back until I close the studio and start again, but it comes back.  I had SQL 2008 on it side by side which I now removed thinking that it may be causing the issue.  This is not going away. Wondering if you have come across this issue or can throw some light.

    See the error details below, it pops up in a small window and has a detail button to see the rest of JIT stuff.

    Thanks!

    See the end of this message for details on invoking

    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.
