SQL Server Management studio - cannot show requested dialog NColIndex




    I've just bought a 64 bit system running Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008.


    I wa shaving trouble getting the backups to work so I thought I'd better attached a database so that there was something a bit more meaty to copy.

    However when I try to attach a database file I get the message


    SQL Server Management Studio

    Cannot show requested Dialog


    Actual value was -1 (Microsoft.SQLServer.GridControl)


    I'm logged in to SQL as SA


    Am I doing something wrong here?


    Can anyone advise me what to try next?

  • Hi,

    I am aware of the issue being with non sysadmin. Look at this post.

  • I can NOT believe that this is seen to be an acceptable error message by Microsoft?!

  • Why not?  "Oops, something went wrong, wibble..." - pretty much sums up the stack!

    I've seen worse from both Microsoft and other companies.

    The may not actually be the whole message. The OP may not be providing the whole message.

  • I'm so frustrated with Microsoft's vague errors.  I've spent more time on Google searching for solutions than on learning.  
    If SQL server 2008 doesn't like Express, than recommend me to uninstall it.  

    "Cannot show requested dialog."  
    Thanks Microsoft, you're really helping boost Google's search.

  • Run Management Studio as administrator by right clicking on it's icon in start menu and selecting 'Run as administrator'. You need to do this even if you are administrator on your PC. This will resolve your issue.
