Method not found Void.

Applies to: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2016 - July 2016 Update.

Problem Description.

Some users are reporting they cannot connect to a SQL Server database engine via SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) after installing the July 2016 update of SSMS. They receive the following error when they try to connect to a SQL Server instance via SSMS.

Cannot connect to PC\SQLEXPRESS.
Method not found: 'Void Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.SqlConnectionInfo.set_ApplicationIntent(System.String)'. (ConnectionDlg)


Try uninstalling July 2016 version of SSMS and then reinstalling a previous version of SSMS (the June version should work as expected).

The error may show when upgrading from a previous version of SSMS to the July 2016 version, Charles Gagnon (MSFT) suggest as workaround uninstalling completely the previous version and installing July version from scratch. For more information, please visit this thread.
