Cannot load file..another DLL Hell

I got Visual Web Dev Express 2008 for my day job ( Angry because it is free know ), when I tried to create a connection through SQL Datasource or Entity Model or LINQ or any means through editor, I get the below error saying, but no clue..but luckily google saved my time.

"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."

The quick fix is, download the below 3 setup and install to get rid of this error.

            Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types
            Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Objects
            Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client
