Exception error when I try to browser the server explorer

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have VS.Net professional installer, along with
MSDE. I am having severe difficulty browsing
the server explorer window.

I can see the Data connections node in the tree
and the Servers node. However, if I attempt to
expand the server node I get a Server Explorer

There is no error number but the text reads

Server Explorer is unable to perform this operation.
See blow for details.

Add then in a scrollable text box there is written:

The type installer for "System.Net.Dns" threw an


The type installer for "System.Net.Sockets.Socket"
threw an exception.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be
causing this to occur. I have uninstallted MSDE
and VS.Net. I then re-installed VS.Net but I still
get the same error message. I am in the process
of downloading and re-installing MSDE, but I do
not think that this will solve the problem.

Many thanks for any help you are able to offer me.
