Framework3.5 designer does not open RRS feed

  • Question


    I have VS2008 and framework 3.5 installed. When working in Visual Studio on ASP.NET Applications, I could not use the designer at all. Using the Source view of ASPX files worked fine. When switching to Split- or Design view, the editor would freeze and nothing else would happen. I could close the tab and keep on working in Source view. When I do a mouseover on the page directive, it shows an error message Runtime error: the <path> is not a valid virtual path. But there are no errors when i try to open the application in the browser. It opens fine in the browser and works as expected. But am not able to view the code in design view or in split view. Please help.

  • I have heard of an issue where the ASP.NET design view is completely broken if the physical path of the solution contains a "#" character. Is this the case for you?
