Error loading type library/DLL

anwanw Posts: 1 New member
I've uninstalled and reinstalled SQL Prompt a couple times, but continue to receive this error:
Error loading type library/DLL. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80029C4A (TYPE_E_CANTLOADLIBRARY))

I get this error in Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio 2015, SSMS 2014, and SSMS 2016. I'm not able to use any SQL Prompt features.

Strangely, I wasn't receiving these errors a few days ago. I've confirmed with the sysadmins that no updates were deployed to our machines over the weekend, and I hadn't made any manual updates prior to seeing this error.

I saw this error with SQL Prompt 7.3, then installed SQL Prompt 7.5.1, but am still getting it.

    Hi Anw,

    Sorry to hear that you are getting that error on multiple VS/SSMS versions.

    When do you normally see it - is it on startup? Would it be possible to attach a screenshot?

    Best wishes,
