We are trying to use SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2 to connect to a SQL Server 2012 deployment. When we are right clicking tables or attempting to script anything out we are just getting the error stating that the index is outside the bounds of the array. Is there a way of getting it so we don’t receive this error message within the 2008 client tools by service packing to SP2 or is the only way around this going to be to install the management tools for 2012. The problem is we have been told that the management tools for 2012 will only run on windows 7 or above and within our organisation the supported operating system is still only windows XP. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

You get this error because sql server do not support backward compatibility, which means 2008/2008R2 Management Studio cannot connect to a higher version of SQL Server, it will be the same case for SQL Azure.

Workaround is to Use SQL Server 2012 / Express to be able to connect to a 2012 instance and also you can try once from sqlcmd, you don't need to install whole of SQL 2012.
