I have recently installed SQL Prompt 5.3.6 on my windows 7 x64 French machine.
And now I SSMS 2012 crashes when starting with the following error message in the event viewer:

#1:Failed to acquire mutex - IPNService quitting
System.Security.Principal.IdentityNotMappedException: Impossible de traduire certaines ou toutes les références d'identité.
à System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Ipc.IpcServerChannel.StartListening(Object data)
à System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Ipc.IpcServerChannel..ctor(IDictionary properties, IServerChannelSinkProvider sinkProvider, CommonSecurityDescriptor securityDescriptor)
à ..()
à ...ctor(Timer )
à ...ctor()
à ..()
à RedGate.IPNShared.CommonUtils.DoWithMutex(MutexType mutexType, TimeSpan delay, Action action)
à RedGate.IPNShared.CommonUtils.DoWithMutex(MutexType mutexType, Action action)
à ..()

It may be because I have installed SQL Prompt on a french OS ?
Could you please help?

Thanks for help

    It appears the crash is being caused by the IPN service

    The In-Product Notifications (IPN) is our mechanism for informing users that their support contracts are expiring. It just gives you the pop-up as and when your contract is expiring.

    You can safely completely disable IPN by adding the following registry key:

    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Red Gate\IPN\Ignored
    containing a string called "Ignore All", with its value set to "True". This will cause IPN Service to terminate immediately on launch.

    This won't affect the functioning of any products.
