Error: Could not load file or assembly 'RedGate.SharedSSMS'

When trying to save a build definition in VS2010, I get the error message as described below.
The odd thing here is that I am not using SQL prompt at this stage, I just open VStudio, open a build definition, make a small change and try to save that definition. Any ideas?

Error message :
Could not load file or assembly 'RedGate.SharedSSMS', version, Culture = neutral, PublicKeyToken=7f465a1c156d4d57' or one of its dependencies

The file *does* exists in C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 5

Win 7 ent
SQL Prompt
Visual Studio 2010 TE
MS SQL (dev) 2008 R2

    This is probably the same problem as described in this thread.

    We're working on a fix for the next release of SQL Prompt, but for now you can work around the problem by renaming or deleting the file
    C:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 5\Plugins\RedGate.SQLPrompt.ConnectionColoring.dll
    (that's for 32 bit Windows - for 64 bit, you need to look in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Gate...')

    We believe this problem should now be fixed in SQL Prompt 5.3. Please let us know if it isn't!
