The Add-in 'SSMS Integration Pack Framework' failed to load or caused an exception

Windows 2012 R2 with SQL 2014 Std (12.0.5556.0)
Initially updated my SQL Developer Bundle to the latest version (2.0.1.2056) 8th Nov 2017 - no errors doing the install.
When I go into SSMS, I get the Add-in error above plus the question to remove the add-in. The Error message is "The parameter is incorrect". Error number: 80070057.
I then uninstalled all the RedGate software installed on the machine and tried again. No luck.
I then repeated this but also deleted the folder "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SQL Server Management Studio" as the only add-ins were the RedGate ones. I also deleted the folder "C:\ProgramData\Red Gate" but kept the Licenses folder within here. Still no luck.
Any ideas as to what it going wrong?

    Same issue here after installing products using Redgate Installer for SQL Toolbelt version 2.0.1.2056. I uninstalled SSMS Integration Pack 1 and SSMS Integration Pack Framework. I installed the integration pack using the latest Toolbelt installer (2.0.1.2105). This solved the problem for me.

    Note: the reinstall only installed SSMS Integration Pack 1, not the framework.

    Getting exactly the same on fresh install of SQLToolbelt (2.0.1.2045), no errors on install but getting 80070057, the parameter is incorrect on SSMS start up. Not removed and reinstalled yet.
  • Thanks Terry. This approach also works for the SQL Developer Bundle (2.0.1.2099). It must be something to do with the install sequence.

    Tried reinstalling and also repair option didn't work for me, had to remove all SSMS add ins and then did another repair and it worked.

    Having the same issue.
    Downloaded the latest installer.
    Running SSMS 12.2.5000.0

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling SSMS Integration Pack 1, however, still getting the same issue.
  • Hi @Chris Gorringe

    Please try the followings steps in order to get around this error message:

    1) Close any running instance of SSMS
    2) From Programs and Features, if there is still a program installed called "SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1", uninstall this (note: you may also have a "SSMS Integration Pack 1" installed, which should remain installed)
    3) Delete the folder c:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SIPFw if it still exists
    4) Reboot
    5) Reinstall or repair SQL Source Control/SQL Doc/SQL Search/ SQL Test/Dependency tracker/SQL Data Generator (either option should repopulate c:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SIPFw and reinstall called "SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1")
    6) Launch SSMS to check if the error still occurs

    This should free you of the error in question.

  • Hi Richard
    Many thanks for this. Is the issue the left over package "SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1"?
    Kind regards

  • Hi Chris,

    The SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1 is what integrates our plugins into SSMS 2014 and earlier, and it used to be installed as a separate program onto your machine. The most recent versions of our plugins, however, just include the files for the SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1 in their own installs so that a separate "SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1" program is no longer needed.

    The "parameter is incorrect" error usually means that the files for the SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1 (located in c:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SIPFw) are corrupted. A leftover SSMS Integration Pack Framework 1 install normally shouldn't affect this but it's possible that old files from the original install weren't cleared out. This is why deleting c:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SIPFw and repairing one of the tools should usually help.

    Hope that helps explain things!

    So, I tried 3 different installers.

    2.0.1.2045 - failed
    2.0.1.2105 - failed
    2.0.1.1972 - success

    I downloaded the first two installers off the Redgate website. Luckily my colleague had an older copy which worked. If anyone is experiencing this issue maybe its easier to give them an earlier version of the installer.
  • Thanks @Calvin_P!

    Yes it seems something about the newer versions of the tools (included with the newer installers) is corrupting the SIPFw for various users but it hasn't been consistent so it's not clear why.

    Can I just confirm if you were able to try the workaround above with no luck?

    I'm also unable to update. I uninstalled everything (and ensured that the SIPFw folder was removed) and re-installed and continue to get the error above. I'm also running SSMS 2014 but am on Windows 10.
  • Sorry to hear that @lambacck!

    Can you please try the following:

    1. Close SSMS
    2. Delete the folder C:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SIPFw
    3. Also delete the file C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SQL Server Management Studio\11.0\Addins\RedGate.SIPFramework.addin
    4. From Programs and Features, repair SQL Search

    I have recently ran into some problems using the redgate toolbelt:
    - struggled to uninstall certain tools, had to use a third party uninstall tool to get rid of them to then try reinstalling them (see here)
    - every time i load ssms i get the message "the add-in 'ssms integration pack framework' failed to load".
    - The all the redgate tools are missing from the redgate toolbar

    i've tried uninstalling/repairing ssms integration pack 1 (i dont have ssms integration pack framework listed in add/remove programs) god knows how many times following a few solutions from this forum to no avail, solutions generally revolve around repairing redgate toolbelt items or deleting ssms and redgate %programdata% folders.
    while the redgate tool shortcuts are missing from the redgate toolbar (toolbar>customise>redgate) the sql prompt menu item exists and when i right click a database options for sql compare are in the context menu. ideally i would like sql search etc to be back in the redgate toolbar if i can because i have no idea how to access them otherwise.

    To try and solve the problem i've tried to remove every last trace of visual studio, ssms, redgate toolbelt and all of their settings and %programdata% from the machine and the registry, and then reinstall it all again, and all of the same problems still persist.

    Hi @Flinger,

    Can you please confirm as well which SSMS addins of ours you have on your machine? (SQL Search, SQL Test, SQL Prompt, SQL Source Control)

    Can you please also let us know what SSMS versions you have installed and which are having the issue?

    (I'd like to try completely deleting all of our addin-related files from your machine and then reinstalling, but need to confirm the paths to delete from first.)

    I was using a very old version of SSMS. I updated to the newest version and everything is working perfectly. Thanks Redgate!

    FYI : For some reason, if you click quote and start writing your comment in the white area following the quote, but then decide to delete what you wrote but send the cursor back into the quote area, you can't then move the cursor out of the quote area. Even if you come out of the forum and back in, it remembers what you had written before and keeps the cursor in this quote box. so posting this to get out of the quote

    Hi Richard,
    I followed this advice last time this issue occurred (When i tried rolling back SQL Search to 3.0.4) and it successfully sorted out the problem. So when this issue occurred again when installing the latest SQL Search i dug out this advice and followed it again. This time it didn't work but maybe i didn't follow it to the letter. As i didn't have time to figure out what i had done wrong, i just decided to uninstall everything and reinstall again from the toolbelt.exe. And this sorted the issue out , although left me on SQL Search 3.0.7. I will wait for my current deployment task to be over before trying to update again. Thanks for the reply.

    @kalo

    Thanks for this. 

    It seems that if you select all using CTRL + A and then delete, the field is blank again with no quotation. 

    I hope this works for you. 

    I'm glad also that your issue is now sorted. Do let us know if the steps worked for you anyway if you experience it again. 

    Best

    None of the above has worked for me. I have uninstalled, deleted reinstalled, etc. multiple times with no luck in getting SQL Search 3.1 to work with SSMS 2014. The "SSMS Integration Pack Framework" does not show in Programs & Features and there is no "repair" option for SQL Search - just "uninstall". 
  • Hi @MylesRip

    Can you try installing the latest version to see if that helps? Here's a download link - ftp://support.red-gate.com/patches/SQLSearch/01May2018/SQLSearch.exe

  • I found an orphaned registry entry, not removed by SSMS Integration Pack or SQL Search uninstallation:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Shell\AddIns\RedGate.SIPFramework.Connect]

    Remove this, and SSMS works fine again :)
