Resolution:

Open command prompt and execute below command,

 

mofcomp.exe “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof”

 

Note: to cross verify, ensure that sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof exists as above said location, if you are using SQL 2012 or later, go to appropriate shared folder on C: and update the command and execute

Now, SQL Server configuration manager should open fine without any issues.
