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