I am getting the following error every time now on connection to any of my servers since I upgraded from 5.5 to 5.7. Any info on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi jdehart,

can you please advise if you have SQL Optimizer installed on your PC? if so what version?

Also, can you please let me know if you have access to this key in registry:
CLSID{52FFECAC-D374-47C4-AA67-69373A9DF9DB}\InprocServer32

what can you see there?
