The Connection Dialog Box Does Not Appear in Management Studio

advertisements

When I open my Management Studio program, it does not open up the connection dialog like it used to. It gives me a dialog box which says:

Object Reference not set to an instance of an object.

Anyone got any idea how to fix this?


What version of SQL server is this?
