I am having an exceedingly strange issue with SSMS. When opening new sql files (from explorer or file->open) or query windows (file -> new), if no change has been made in the active window, SSMS reuses the same tab instead of opening in a new one. This ONLY happens if the I attempt to open multiple scripts at one time or there is no change in the active tab.
So far I have tried just about every registry hack I could find using google, I have reinstalled SQL Server Management Studio twice now, update to the latest service packs, looked through the configuration options in SSMS and have yet to be able to solve this. My coworkers, using the same windows image, are NOT having this problem and they have used the same installation process. The only difference on my system was that visual studio 2008 was installed AFTER installing Sql Server, which caused its own host of other problems, but after removing VS, .Net Frameworks, and SSMS and reinstalling in the correct order those issues appear to be corrected.
I am running SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3 10.00.5500.00 on windows 7 enterprise.
Any help anyone can provide would go a long way toward making today a less then frustrating experience.
