Error while trying to view work item

I recently installed SP1 for Visual Studio 2008.  When I try to open any work item, I ended up getting the following error.

Could not load type ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client.WorkItemTypeDeniedOrNotExistException’ from assembly ‘Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Client, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’.

I can see the list of work Items when I run the query but I doesn’t show up any work item details.  Like every body does when they get error I googled to find out what’s actual wrong thing I did or happened during the SP1 installation.

So the problem was that I have installed Team Explorer 2008 after installing Visual Studio 2008 SP1.   We need to installed Team Explorer 2008 first and then apply SP1 so that it applies SP1 to Team Explorer as well.  Look at what version you see if you go to Help -> Pick “Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Explorer” from Installed Products.  If you see the version 9.0.30729.1, you should be fine otherwise you need to reinstalled Visual Studio 2008 SP1 to get rid of that error.
