Visual Studio Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I uninstalled Visual Studio from my C drive that was running low on space, and then reinstalled it on my D drive. Now every time I try to open a C# application I get an error message. The error message keeps coming up over and over again, and I can't work on any projects.

    What is going on, and how do I fix it?

  • No I didn't see the log file, because it doesn't exist. The error message is wrong.

    I ran the repair tool and it said it completed successfully, but there were some errors:

  • Reinstalled again and downloaded the service pack and ran windows update. Still doesn't work. Please don't tell me I have to format my entire hard drive in order to fix this problem.

  • Hi Kensino,

      Would you please try the answer appeared in Missing fwlink entry for cabinet: #QFE.cab. It has provided two ways that are downloading  Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) or using Visual Studio 2010 Uninstall Utility to clean uninstall Visual Studio.

      Hope it helps you.

      Sincerely,

      Jason Wang

  • Nice try, but it's still broken. Looks like I have to format my entire computer now.
