I just had a developer who had this same issue.

Turns out he was trying to open a SQL 2008 database with SSMS 2005.

He opened up SSMS 2008 and the problem went away.

I am having the problem as well. It seems to happen when trying to access a database object and I get the error twice before successfully accessing the object.

For example, I try to view the Design View of a table in SQL 2005/2008 Management Studio and get the "Unspecified Error" message. On the 3rd attempt, I am able to view the Design View.

Some people are linking Internet Explorer and the "Unspecified Error" together. For what it's worth, I'm using IE8. But error was happening before I upgraded to IE8.

Any solutions to the problem would be much appreciated! I get the "Unspecified Error" 15 to 20 times each day.

Thanks,

Mike

I Had the same problem....
It had to do with SQL Server 2005 And SQL Server 2008.

When you try to open an SQL Server 2008 table with SQL SSMS 2005 it gives that error.

If you are accessing from a client machine try installing the latest version. (New Version of Management Studio)

Fix unspecified error (MS Visual Database Tool) in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
Is common situation when a developer in the process of migration from MS SQL Server 2005 to 2008 try to get access to both databases from one Visual Designer tool. If you will try to display data located on MS SQL Server 2008 from MS SQL Server management studio for 2005 server you will get the follow error:


Unspecified error
(MS Visual Database Tools)

------------------------------

To fix this problem, just download new version of Management Studio.

I am getting this error after trying to upgrade 2005 to 2008R.
It failed because it wanted for me to remove 2005 tools and when I cancelled it removed some tools, but I do not what tools it removed.
I think this has to do with 2008R not been tested properly.
2008R cannot work with 2005!

I tried then to remove 2008R (well the bits it installed), it seemed to uininstall properly but it is still there! I just cannot get rid of it!

I can link to my hosting company server where from I can create and design my tables but cannot use my own!

I will call Microsoft tomorrow morning, but I guess tech support will not know what to do.... as usual...

Microsoft used to be one of the best company for supporting developers but in the last 5 years the client care has dropped dramatically.

Great solution found here: http://harshgupta71.blogspot.in/2013/02/the-specified-module-could-not-be-found.html

Essentially, delete the files located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSDesigners8
and then replace with the ones Gupta has available on his site.

I did this and problem was solved.

Thanks a lot for Gupta's link. This did not only solve the database diagram issues but also solve my SASS "specified module could not be found".
