Can't find a database forum, so I'm posting here. If this is no good, perhaps someone can effectively redirect me...

On starting SQL Server Management Studio Express, I get a message that says:

|   Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express
|    ^
|   /!\  The file C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\mscorlib.tlb
|    ¯   could not be loaded.
|        An attempt to repair this condition failed because the file
|        could not be found.
|        Please reinstall this program.
|                                 ______

|                                 ¯¯¯¯¯¯

Though I have Visual Studio 2003 on the computer (MS Dev. Environ 7.1.3088)., I do not find mscorlib.tlb on the machine anywhere with the Search for Files or Folders.

What to do?


You need to install net framework. Free download from Microsoft or should be on your SQL server disk.
