Error when trying to debug any project - Error while trying to run project: The system cannot find the file specified. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I've done a fresh installation of Visual Studio 2015 professional and cannot seem to debug any C# projects on my system.  The error being reported is:

    ---------------------------
    Microsoft Visual Studio
    ---------------------------
    Error while trying to run project: The system cannot find the file specified.

    The Visual Studio IDE loads up existing and new projects with an error advising to review the ActivityLog.xml located at C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ActivityLog.xml  (See below for output).  The culprit looks like missing Microsoft.IntelliTrace.  I'm hesitant to do the installation of this manually as this may be the just the tip of the iceberg and more likely a symptom of a wider issue.

    I've tried to uninstall all versions of Visual Studio 2010, 2012 and 2015, and attempt a full fresh installation of Visual Studio 2015. 

    This is all running on Windows 10 Pro.

    Has anyone got any ideas why the fresh Visual Studio 2015 installation failed so spectacularly and can I repair this installation without doing a manual installation?

    Thanks

  • Hi sfernz,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    >>The Visual Studio IDE loads up existing and new projects with an error advising to review the ActivityLog.xml located at C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ActivityLog.xml  (See below for output).

     you may try to running devenv.exe /log <log path> in Command Prompt, the log files will be generated in the <log path>.

    Then you can check and analyze the log file to see if there are anything incorrect, Or you may upload the devenv log to us for analysis.

    According yo your description, installation of Visual Studio 2015 professional is crashed, 

    You may try some devenv switches in command prompt:

    a.Run devenv /Resetsettings to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings.

    b.Run devenv /ResetSkipPkgs in Command Prompt.

    c.Run devenv /Safemode to see if you can apply it correctly. This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems.

    Besides, Please use http://aka.ms/vscollect   to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.cab from %temp% folder.

    Please upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/   and share the link with us.

    Best Regards,

  • I've enabled fusion logs for further information which does shed some light on to the missing installation of IntelliTrace.

    Would appreciate any more insight on this.

    Thanks

  • Hi sfernz,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    >>The Visual Studio IDE loads up existing and new projects with an error advising to review the ActivityLog.xml located at C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ActivityLog.xml  (See below for output).

     you may try to running devenv.exe /log <log path> in Command Prompt, the log files will be generated in the <log path>.

    Then you can check and analyze the log file to see if there are anything incorrect, Or you may upload the devenv log to us for analysis.

    According yo your description, installation of Visual Studio 2015 professional is crashed, 

    You may try some devenv switches in command prompt:

    a.Run devenv /Resetsettings to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings.

    b.Run devenv /ResetSkipPkgs in Command Prompt.

    c.Run devenv /Safemode to see if you can apply it correctly. This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems.

    Besides, Please use http://aka.ms/vscollect   to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.cab from %temp% folder.

    Please upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/   and share the link with us.

    Best Regards,

    Wen Xu

  • What is the outcome? Is there a solution? Currently I am facing similar problem. 

    I have spent a few days searching. So far, no one has managed to come out with a solution:

    Problem is related to Options-> IntelliTrace : the popup widows show the error shown below
