Visual Studio 2012: Unable to create new website or project RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-723833757 posted

    I recently installed VS2012 express for web

    When I try to create a new website I get an error

    Microsoft.VisualStudio.Dialogs.DialogInitiationException was thrown

    I unistalled and re-installed, Same error

    I am running windows 7, 4gb ram, VS2012, Sql2012

    Also, every time I load web paltform installer, it allows me to install VS2012 for Web instead of saying installed

    Any ideas on what is wrong?

    For this situation, I would suggest you to manually uninstall Visual Studio,

    1.In the Control Panel, open the utility for uninstalling a program, for example, in Windows 7, open Uninstall a program.

    2.Remove all instances of Visual Studio 2012 products.

    3.Uninstall any supporting products, in the link below. In non-English installations, you must also remove language packs for some of the listed products. You do not have to reboot until after you have removed the last package on the list.

    At the same time you can follow the procedures to install Visual Studio 2012 for web  again,

    # Installing Visual Studio 2012


    and then re-install it, Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 download here,
