Tuesday, April 19, 2005 4:07 PMI uninstalled beta 1 and net framework prior to installing beta 2 version of visual basic.net. The start screen doesn't appear because it can't connect to the proper url. As a result, I can't even begin a new windows application. Any ideas how to resolve this issue
Tuesday, April 19, 2005 6:53 PMGood question,
First of all, you should make sure you uninstalled Beta 1 in the correct order as listed here http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/uninstall/.
Second, even if you uninstalled in the correct order, you're still going to have your old profile which won't show the new Start page.
To reset your settings, go to Tools...Import/Export Settings and select "Reset All Settings".
Once your settings are reset, close and open the IDE and you should be good to go. If not please let us know!

But my problem now is that everytime I start debugging, visual basic .net crashes. So, I am trying to find out how to fix this issue. Thanks for your help.

I also have similar problem with C#. I did what Dan suggested but the problem is I get this message everytime I launch Import/Export Settings
"The operation could not be completed. No such interface supported"

Dan, see you next week in Brussels!
Saturday, April 23, 2005 10:21 AMI had the same problem in VC# 2005 Express 2.0 Beta 2. I upgraded from Beta 1. I followed the instructions EXACTLY, I get no startup screen. In fact the directory it references does not exists. I tried your "Reset All Settings" example above and I got a bunch of errors for example
"Error 1: Keyboard: The Command 'Refactor.EncapsulateField' does not exist. The k..."
I can not read rest of the error message as the control on the page does not scroll horizontally (a scroll bar is there but it does not let me scroll) and there is no way to copy the messages either.
There are 38 error messages, all of the same format, "Error #: Keyboard: The Command '???' does not exist.
It did fix the start page though :-)
