  •  

    When doing a compling large files in VS 2008 I get an error 233.

     

    An error occurred loading a configuration file: Failed to start monitoring changes to 'Z:\xxx\tabs\css' because the network BIOS command limit has been reached. For more information on this error, please refer to Microsoft knowledge base article 810886. Hosting on a UNC share is not supported for the Windows XP Platform.   Z:\xxx\tabs\css\web.config    (I am not using a UNC share I am using a mapped drive)

     

    When I put in the setting from KB810886 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810886.  I know the seeting are not for Vista machines however I put these in my other workstation that is running XP Pro and I am able to compile with out a problem.  After I put these setting in my Vista workstation and reboot I am able to sign on however I never get my desltop and I have to logon with a different profile and do a system restore. 

     

    Does anyone know how to fix the error above on a Vista Ultimate Workstation working on a shared drive?

  • I have the same issue, and frankly, it pisses me of, that there are no suitable solutions present.

    I have tried the registry tweaks and so on, but still no solution.

     

    I am also running Windows Vista Ultimate w. VS2008 Team Suite clien.

     

    Error 1 An error occurred loading a configuration file: Failed to start monitoring changes to <MYSHARE>\Cuemon Application Server\Web\Community\themes\default\images\statusstrip' because the network BIOS command limit has been reached. For more information on this error, please refer to Microsoft knowledge base article 810886. Hosting on a UNC share is not supported for the Windows XP Platform

     

    The one marked with bold is what really sets me off, as I am running x64 Windows Vista mashine.

    The share itself is located on a Windows 2003 server, running x86.

  • I have the same problem, but I work on a virtual machine on windows Xp and VS2005.

    I tried to resolve the problem with the information give here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810886 but maybe because it's a virtual machine, it doesn't work !
    Do you have any idea ?

  • Must be part of Microsoft's cunning plan to move us all over to Apple Macintosh/UNIX. [I see this error on Windows XP with VS2008 with all latest hotfixes :( 15th Apr 2011].

  • OK, I'm getting this error on a Windows 7 x64 with VS 2010 I looked for the registry values and they are not there, so is there any difference for Windows 7 with VS2010?
