Vanishing Save As dialog RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've long suspected that the behavior I reported in the SQL Server Manageability forum

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlkjmanageability/thread/a327fad6-74dc-4a2b-a446-bf5741190c16

    isn't a problem with SQL Server Management Studio at all, but rather a general Windows 7 problem. 

    In summary, if you run this application as an administrator and perform an action that uses a common dialog, then click on the dropdown list at the top of the dialog, the dialog vanishes and the application refuses to close.   You have to kill it via Task Manager.  This doesn't happen if you don't run with elevated privileges.

    I can think of a number of places where something might be going wrong: in the common dialog code, in the .NET framework, in MMC, in Explorer...    There's no way for me to tell.

    (These machines are assiduously patched via Automatic updates.  I don't want to see anything about installing the latest service pack).

    Please try to turn off UAC, then check whether this makes any difference.

    You may also use Process Monitor to check whether the behavior has any differences between them.

  • I don't believe it's actually related to SQL Server, because it's happening in a common dialog.   It could be an MMC issue or a problem in the common dialog component.  But, we'll pursue it over there for the time being.
