SQL Server 2008 Business Intelligence Developer Error

I was working on an project with SQL Server 2008 Business Intelligence Developer and encountered an interesting error that really did not provide enour information to track the issue down. Luckily I found the following information on one of the mentions I could find on the Internet. The issue is due to a change that Visual Studio 2012 Beta did to my machine. VS2012 is no longer loaded on my machine! 

If you encounter the following error:


An error prevented the view from loading. (Microsoft Visual Studio)


The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E) (System.Windows.Forms)

This error is apparently due to changes that Visual Studio 2011 Beta does to you common files. To quickly fix the problem find a machine with the following folder  delete your local "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSDesigners8" folder and replace it with a clean copy. That resolves the issue!
