The operation cannot be completed, no such interface supported

    Question

  • I installed VS2015 in my machine Windows 10, it works fine for any branch of my Repos. But when I try to build the master branch recently, I click the "build solution" button, I got this error "the operation cannot be completed, no such interface supported", while I can build the other branch of the same repo. I tried to restart VS2015, repair VS2015, reinstall VS2015, repair .net framework, but nothing works. Any one can help me solve this problem? Thanks a lot

  • Hi Qiong Wei,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Does the master branch can build successfully before?

    To confirm this issue is related to the master branch or not, please backup it and try to create a new master branch then build it, see if the same issue will happen or not. If not works fine, that means this issue is caused by the specific master branch. If not, refer to the error message “the operation cannot be completed, no such interface supported”, please have a try the following to troubleshot this issue:

    1. Re-registering the actxprxy.dll and oleaut32.dll file in the %SystemRoot%\system32

    2. Repair the .NET Framework 4.5.2 using the .NET Framework Repair Tool then restart the VS 2015 and try it again.

    3. Delete or rename the following folders:

    •C:\Users\<your users name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0

    •C:\Users\<your users name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0

    4. Please try to delete the Your_Solution_FileName.suo file and backup it before deleting it, then reopen this solution again.

    Meanwhile, you can have a look at this similar issue and there are some solutions that provided from other community members.

    If this issue persists, I need your help to collect the VS runtime logs, please run the command: devenv /log in the evaluated command prompt. And upload the file (%APPDATA%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Version\ActivityLog.xml) to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link here.

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Hi Sara,

    Thanks a lot for providing the troubleshooting solutions.

    The master branch can build successfully before. The other branch can build successfully, just the master branch cannot.

    I also tried to build master branch on my laptop and I got the same problem. I tried to create a new master branch, but got the same issue. I repaired the .NET framework as well. I guess maybe the issue is caused by this master branch. However, I asked my colleague to build the master branch using VS2015, it can build successfully on his machine, so I got confused.

    I tried all the steps you provided to troubleshooting this issue, but it cannot solve this issue, I just upload the log file to one drive, but it does not allow me to share the link here, you just need to append ?id=root&cid=E573D09A18326328 to the link you provide for me to check the log file. Thanks a lot.

    Best,

    Qiong

  • Hi Qiong,

    Thank you for your update.

    Refer to your description, it looks like this issue is more related to your VS 2015, since the new master branch also cannot works.

    >>The master branch can build successfully before. The other branch can build successfully, just the master branch cannot.

    Have you made any changes to your computer or VS 2015, like install the windows updates or install the extensions or update in VS 2015..., if so, please remove them, then try it again.

    Meanwhile, you can navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE and run the command: devenv /safemode in the evaluated command prompt as administrator, if it works and it looks like this issue caused by the extensions or  you need to remove the installed extensions under Tools—Extensions and Updates.

    Please go to Control Panel--Control Panel and right click the VS 2015 item and choose Change-Repair, then check this issue again.

    I have tried to access your shared link: https://onedrive.live.com/?id=root&cid=E573D09A18326328 and found this folder is empty.

    Best regards,

    Sara
