When you right-click on a table it gives you the option to "open table" but it gives me an error, "Object reference not set to an instance of an object. (SQLEditors)"

Do I have something setup wrong?

It appears that I am unable to perform this option running SSMS remotely, but using SSMS on the server works fine. Is this a limitation of SSMS or just a security issue?

I removed then re-install SSMS and now it works perfectly.

I am having the same problems, but in my case it all seems related to registry access.
I wasn't the one who setup SQL Server 2005, that may be part of it. I am, through group permissions, a local admin on the (virtual) machine. The error I see, when simply starting the "Management Studio" is:
"System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the registry key 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Shell' is denied.
...(and a whole bunch of other message info...).

I was able to run regedit, find the user tree that did install it, I exported the entire MS SQL Server branch out to a file, edited the file, and changed the specific "user" reference to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" and tried to merge it, but again, access was denied. So it seems that my problems are related to the registry and access to it, or not in this case. Maybe I should try a different login...

I am having somewhat of the same problem, the error I get is <Access to the registry key 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Shell' is denied>. I am in the local admin group, however, I did not install SQL Server 2005 on this server, nor did I configure the server. Were you able to get your's resolved?

Thanks

Roy

Sorry all, I've been away from this issue for so long, that I can't remember anything about it as far as whether I resolved the issue I was having or not, although I may be revisiting it again shortly.

This should be a problem with the client tools installation. also check for the registry permissions in the client machine.

Using regedt32.exe, have you checked permissions on that hive as well as the same one for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE? If so, is the Administrators group listed?
