Unable to build the solution of Stock sample RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using SQL 2005 beta( the latest CTP, september 2005) and Visual Studio 2005.
    I follow the step-by-step in the 2005 book on-line to build the Stock sample, but cannot build the solution; I'm able to run sn.exe to create the sample key, but when I open the Stock.sln I get the error:

    'The application for project 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Notification Services\Stock\AddSunscribers\cs\AddSubscribers\AddSubscribers.csproj' is not installed.
    Make sure the application for the project type (.csproj) is installed'

    But the file is there.....???
    The same error happens for loading of AddSubscription.csproj.

    So I stuck here....Am I missing something?  
    Any ideas are appreciate, thanks!

  • Hi Nga Nguyen -

    A .csproj file is a C# project file. Have you installed Visual Studio 2005's C#?  It's been a while since I've done this, but I think you can select which programming languages you'd like to have installed. If you only opted to install VB.NET and don't have C# installed, you won't be able to open/compile the project.
