Installation Woes

Jun 14, 2012 at 7:54 PM

Thanks for providing this tool, I appreciate it even if it is not working.

Problem: I can't open the .sln file and I can't run the vsix file.

When I try to open your .sln file, I get an error: "The project type is not supported by this installation.".  I'm running Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, every option is installed.

Additional info: "The project file 'C:\Users\randy\Downloads\SnippetCompiler\SnippetCompilerToolWindow\SnippetCompilerToolWindow\SnippetCompilerToolWindow.vbproj' cannot be opened."

When I double-clicked the .vsix file, it gave me an error. When I tried again, it told me it was already installed. I see it listed in the extension manager, but when I launch the menu item, I get an error "Catastrophic failure (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8000FFF (E_UNEXPECTED))).

I don't know if it makes any difference, but I am running most apps through MS Application Virtualization Client (but not Visual Studio)
