ApexSQL Complete Fails to load

Hello, since the last update (~Oct 10, 2020) ApexSQL Complete fails to load when opening SSMS2014. Receive the following message:

The Add-in 'ApexSQL Complete' failed to load or caused an exception.

Would you like to remove this Add-in?

If you choose yes, the file it was loaded from, 'C:\Program Files\ApexSQL\ApexSQLComplete\11.0\ApexSQL.Compllete.SsmsLoader.Addin', will be renamed.

Error Message: The system cannot fine the file specified.

Error Number: 80070002

The addin file is in the above directory and the file path to the dll also appears correct. Selecting yes does NOT rename the file as indicated in the message.

Please advise how to fix this issue.



P.S. Note that ApexSQL Refactor continues to work.

  • Hello Jim,

    Hope you're good today,

    Can you try un-installing the application, deleting any application temp file and proceed with a fresh install? If the issue persists, please downgrade to a previous version try again and let us know, if the downgrade works, please open a case with Quest Support so they can report this new version bug.

    Thanks in advance.
