SQL Server Management Studio 19 Crashes after clicking SQL Search

PKincaidPKincaid Posts: 3 New member
I'm running SSMS 19.1 and RedGate Search  Search seems to work but when I click on "Select object in Object Explorer" it crashes SSMS.  Any solution?  I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling RedGate Search -- same results.  Thanks.

    Addition: SSMS still crashes if I just open RedGate Search and don't click on "Select object in Object Explorer" -- I just have to expand one of the items in ObjectExplorer and SSMS crashes.  If I don't open Search at all, I can work without crashing.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    For now, I've only been able to test with SSMS 19.3 and SQL Search 3.6.16 and I didn't get the same result. Are you able to upgrade to SSMS 19.3? If not, do you have any other Redgate extensions installed in SSMS?

    I'm using SSMS v. 18.6 with this version of SQL Search: and I have the same problem. 
    I also have SQL Prompt version installed. 

    I will try to install SSMS v. 19.3 to see if that helps.
