Could not load file or assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc

Another sick error of the day, When you try to create connection string from SQLDatasource or even want to bind existing connection string. You might see a Message box saying
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
This error comes when you are trying to access SQL 2005 stuff from Visual Studio 2008.  So go to the link and download the following stuff
  • Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Objects
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client
