The 'SqlSourceControlPackage' package did not load correctly


This intermittent issue is caused because the add-in load order in SSMS is non-deterministic and we get this error if SQL Source Control loads before the necessary support packages in SSMS have loaded.




  1. Reinstall SQL Source Control
    • From Programs and Features, uninstall SQL Source Control
    • Delete the folder, C:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SIPFw, if it still exists 
    • Restart the operating system 
    • Run the latest installer as administrator to reinstall SQL Source Control
    • Try loading SSMS to see if the error still occurs
  1. Dock the SSMS object explore to the LEFT hand side
