Modifying backup plan fails on SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU3

Earlier this week I run into an issue tying to modify a SQL Server 2012 backup plan for ConfigMgr 2012 SP1. Creating the backup plan had worked just fine, but trying to modify it failed.

Modifying the SQL Backup plan for ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 CU3 (version 11.0.3349).

The failure

When selecting Modify on the backup plan, the console crashed with the following error:

Provide value on 'System.Windows.Markup.StaticExtension' threw an exception. (PresentationFramework)
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. (mscorlib)
The type initializer for 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Graph.Extended.HighContrastSupport' threw an exception. (Microsoft.SqlServer.IntegrationServices.Graph)
D:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SQL Server110ToolsBinnManagementStudiodevenv.exe (System)

The error when trying to modify a SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU3 backup plan.

The Fix

After some research, this turned out to be a known issue in SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU3 that was correct in SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU4 (

Simple as that, after installing SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU4, the backup plan open just fine.

The backup plan after upgrading to SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU4 (version 11.0.3368).
