SSMS error – The Visual Studio component cache is out of date. Please restart Visual Studio.


 
Yesterday while opening SSMS I got an error message popup which mentions:

The Visual Studio component cache is out of date. Please restart Visual Studio.


 

On checking in internet I found a similar issue logged in MS Connect, and the workaround was to cleanup the application folder in the Windows-Temp folder, which is located at following folder location:

C:\Users\your_user_name_here\AppData\Local\Temp\

 

This issue vanished after deleting the SSMS folder. This could be due to the Visual Studio component cache can’t be written or can’t be wiped while in use.

    Thank you. Just to point out, you can also resolve this issue by completely exiting out of SSMS, making sure that all instances of SSMS are killed and reopening it and trying to query again. SSMS does automatically purge the temp data folder (at least the version I run).

      I tried that, even restarted my PC, I think I was using SSMS 2016.
