Error - Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo" Print

  • Installation Error, Installation, Error

As part of our SixBit installation, we download and install a copy of SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. SQL Server 2008 R2 Express is a program from Microsoft. Client versions of SQL Server require SQL Server Management Objects. 


Users will see an error that says "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo'....". 

Possible Causes:

SQL Server Management Objects did not install correctly on the user's computer.


Manually download and install SQL Server 2008 R2 Feature Pack which includes Management Objects.  It can be downloaded from SQL Server 2008 R2 Feature Pack SP3
