Update SQL Server Management Studio

If you get the following prompt while trying to Browse properties of your Database in SQL Server management studio, its time for an update.

“Cannot show requested dialog” 

“Method not found: ‘System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection”

SQL Server Properties Error

Next step would be to  click on Tools-> check for Updates and you would most likely have an update waiting to be installed.

SSMS Update 

Click on Update in the above screen to be redirected to the link to download latest version of SQL Server Management Studio. (17.6 at the time of this writing).

Once the update is completed you would need to restart the machine.
