Cant open the job activity monitor for SQL Server 2005 with SSMS 2008

  • Hi everybody,

    I have just installed SQL Server Management Studio 2008 Express and when I am connected to an instance of SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2000 with it, I can´t open my Job activity monitor, because raise this error when I try to do it:

    Cannot show requested dialog.

    Unable to execute requested command.

    jobs (SqlManagerUi)

    Someone knows what I must to do?

  • i think you need to upgrade your service pack


  • Anyone had any luck fixing this? I'm on SQL 2008 R2 Express trying to access 2005 and 2000 machines and I'm getting the same message as the OP.


  • i have sql server 2008/2005 with standard edition on my laptop and its works.

    Might be with lower version like express the facility is not provided......
