System Center Configuration Manager (Trouble with opening the console)

Quick post, after I did some changes using the SDK for ConfigMgr 2012 I had trouble starting the console, It would just crash and report an error message.

Faulting application name: Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe, version: 5.0.7743.0, time stamp: 0x4fb6dc3d
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7bafa
Exception code: 0xe0434352
Fault offset: 0x0000b727
Faulting process id: 0x1708
Faulting application start time: 0x01cd55eb018bd847
Faulting application path: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Configuration ManagerAdminConsolebinMicrosoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe
Faulting module path: C:Windowssyswow64KERNELBASE.dll
Report Id: 410539fd-c1de-11e1-ad00-080027082ac4

So instead on trying to debug tried to uninstall and reinstall it.
After I reinstalled the Admin Console from the Configmgr media I couldn’t connect. I got no error message what so ever, just that I couldn’t connect to that server. After inspecting the event viewer I saw that ConfigMgr was generating this error message.

    Description = “Please upgrade your Admin Console to newer version”;
    Operation = “ExecMethod”;
    ParameterInfo = “SMS_Identification”;
    ProviderName = “WinMgmt”;
    StatusCode = 2147749889;

And now  I though wtf?
And after consuming a coffee cup I remember that I had CTP1 installed, so reinstall the admin console from the CTP1 media not from the regular ConfigMgr 2012 and then it worked! Smile
