When opening SQL Server Management Studio 2012 with a different user than is currently logged in, splash page opens, then this message appears:
A problem occurred when loading the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio menu. To fix this problem, run 'ssms.exe /resetsettings' from the command prompt. Note: this command resets your environment settings.
This was previously working flawlessly until SSMS stopped unexpectedly. SSMS opens fine when opening with current logged in user.
1.) Tried ssms.exe /resetsettings - this only opens help box. This does not appear to be a valid flag.
2.) I have uninstalled, re-installed SSMS and the Engine several times. Same issue.
3.) This is SQL 2012 SP1 - I added CU5. Same issue.
Critical because at my company we have to connect to our environments using a privileged accounts. This bug prevents me from doing so.
