What to Do When You Get a “Cache is Out of Date” Error Message

By Greg Larsen

The other day, after I installed SQL Server Management studio 17.2, I starting getting the following error message when I tried to start my SQL Server Management Studio:

Visual Studio Component Cache Our of Date
Visual Studio Component Cache Our of Date

After reviewing a few different posts regarding this error, I developed the following steps to resolve this problem:

Step 1:  Shut down SQL Server Management Studio

Step 2: Clean up temporary internet files

To do this, I started the Windows “Disk Cleanup” utility and made sure I only checked the “Temporary Internet Files” item.  Once I only had that one option checked I clicked on the OK button.

Step 3:  Restarted SQL Server Management Studio

Upon restarting SQL Server Management Studio after cleaning up the temporary internet file, SQL Server Management Studio started correctly.  Meaning I didn’t get the “cache is out of date” error message when SQL Server Management Studio started up.
