I have a license of SQL tool belt and all the applications are working fine except SQL search is not available as an option in the toolbar.

I uninstalled SQL search from my Windows 8.1 machine then reinstalled… Still SQL search is not available in SSMS. A previous form post said I should be able to find Red gate when our right mouse on the toolbar. No such option exists.Here is my SSMS details:

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 11.0.2100.60
Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools 11.0.2218.0
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 6.3.9600.17415
Microsoft MSXML 3.0 4.0 5.0 6.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.11.9600.18205
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.30319.42000
Operating System 6.3.9600

    Thanks for contacting us and sorry you are having this issue!

    Would you mind closing SSMS then going to Control Panel-> Programs and Features and Repair the SSMS Integration Pack Framework as well as SQL Search.

    Let me know if you have any issues with that- I will be following up with you via email just in case!
