SQL Server 2012 error “Could not load file or assembly”

After installing Microsoft SQL 2012, when opening information about a user in the Security section, I received the following error:

“Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Sqm, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91’ or one of its dependencies. The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest. (SqlMgmt)”

I tried moving files around as explained here but without success.

After I installed SP1 (SQLServer2012SP1-KB2674319-x64-ENU.exe) the error went away and I was able to see the information.
