  • Solution was to apply a patch of SQL server 2016 version 13.0.16106.4 and this will resolve this issue. Any patch after this version would also help.

  • Hi Aman,

    I've only installed SSMS on a new PC and I'm getting this error.

    Can you point me to where I can download the patch you are referring to?

  • @Aman_IIS, can you help us and tell us which patch you are talking about? I just downloaded a fresh version of SSMS 2016, and I have the same error.
