Problem: (Sql server 2014) This issue happens when assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.management.sdk.sfc version 12.0.0.0 not found by visual studio.

Solution: just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42295 and download:

  • ENU\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X64 OS or
  • ENU\x86\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X86 OS,

then install it, and restart visual studio.

PS: You may need install DB2OLEDBV5_x64.msi or DB2OLEDBV5_x86.msi too.


Problem: (Sql server 2012) This issue happens when assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.management.sdk.sfc version 11.0.0.0 not found by visual studio.

Solution: just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35580 and download:

  • ENU\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X64 OS or
  • ENU\x86\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X86 OS,

then install it, and restart visual studio.


Problem: (Sql server 2008) This issue happens when assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.management.sdk.sfc version 10.0.0.0 not found by visual studio.

Solution: just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26728 and download:

  • 1033\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X64 OS or
  • 1033\x86\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X86 OS,

(In most cases downloading this is better http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=123708&clcid=0x409)

then install it, and restart visual studio.


Problem: I recently got similar problem after installing SharedManagementObjects. assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo, Version=12.0.0.0 not found by visual studio. The problem was Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio was not installed yet.

Solution: for Visual Studio 2013 just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784 and download:

  • vcredist_x64.exe for X64 OS or
  • vcredist_x86.exe for X86 OS,

then install it, and restart visual studio.

PS: You can find Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 20XX for other versions of Visual Studio easily by googling it.

Just want to share my experience on this.

I, too, encountered this error. I'm using MS Visual Studio 2013 and I have an MS SQL Server 2008, though I have had MS SQL Server 2012 Installed before.

I was banging my head on this error for a day. I tried installing SharedManagementObject, SQLSysClrTypes and Native Client, but it didn't work. Why? Well I finally figured that I was installing 2008 or 2012 version of the said files, while I'm using Visual Studio 2013!! My idea is since it is a database issue, the version of the files should be the same with the MS SQL Server installed on the laptop, but apparently, I should have installed the 2013 version because the error is from the Visual Studio and not from the SQL Server.
