OMG – MSIE 9 beta broke my SQL Management Studio

A nasty shock after installing Internet Explorer 9 beta:

Unable to cast COM object of type ‘System.__ComObject’ to interface type ‘Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop.IServiceProvider’. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID ‘{6D5140C1-7436-11CE-8034-00AA006009FA}’ failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)). (Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop)

Fortunately this has been seen before in other circumstances, and the soulution that worked immediately for me was as described in http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/d5d3e5fc-d8ce-4f42-b7ea-9bbbb7756a20/:

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

(I’m running 64 bit)
