Good morning to everyone!

Yesterday I installed Visual Studio 2019 Community on my PC, just to keep up with the times…

I opened a solution containing a Sql Server database project, and opening any project file I received the following error:

“Failed to create an editor. Value cannot be null. Parameter name password”

You can see the screenshot below.

Visual Studio message box

How to solve this?

In the project directory, there is a file with extension “.sqlproj.user”.

Close Visual Studio, delete this file and then run Visual Studio again.

Now you will be able to open files under your database project.

Bye Bye 🙂
