VS2008 Isolated Shell based application.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the application based on VS2008 Isolated shell installed on Windows 8?

    I tried to install our application based on vs2008 shell but we ge the error. We tried installing only vsshell (vs_shell.msi) but still get the same error.

    During the installation we get the error twice and here is the error we get..

    Error 1:

    MessageBox1: Title: Microsoft Document Explorer

    Message: One or more components are not installed. Please reinstall the application

    --------------------

    Error 2:

    MessageBox2: Title: Microsoft visual studio macros

    Message: One or more components are not installed. Please reinstall the application

    Vs2008 isolated shell
    based applications are compatible with Windows 8? Or I have to move VS 2012
    isolated shell.

    Any information is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Atul

    I have to install Microsoft Document Explorer 2008 . This component was missing from my WINDOWS 8 Ghost machine.

    My VS2008 isolated shell based app works :) on WINDOWS 8.
