UnauthorizedAccessException with Visual Studio 11, simple Grid project

    Question

  • I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Visual Studio Professional 11 beta, Blend 11 beta.

    I create a simple Grid projet, want to run it and get an UnauthorizedAccessException. I try to open the project in Blend and get

    "The imported project  C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\WindowsXaml\v10.0\Microsoft.Windows.UI.Xaml.CSharp.targets was not found. In fact on my computer I have C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\WindowsXaml\v11.0\Microsoft.Windows.UI.Xaml.CSharp.targets with v11.0 instead of v10.0.

    By the way when I try to open and run any samples I got the UnauthorizedAccessException.

    Thank you for your help and advices

  • Hi Yves,

    could you check the following folders - C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits and C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies, right click on each folder, select properties, go to the security tab, is the local user ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES part of the list for each folder?

    If so, then we might want to run procmon http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645 to see if it is a file or registry resource where we are getting access denied.  Run process monitor and repro the UnauthorizedAccessException, go back process monitor and select File | capture events to turn off capturing events, then search for access denied in the events that it captured.

    Is this an upgrade scenario where Windows 7 was on the box at one point before you installed windows 8?

    much appreciated,

    mike

  • Thank you for your help. Here below are the two screen capture you asked concerning ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES and below is a small access denied monitored by Process Monitor. I have several such errors in the complete log file. I can send you the log file if you want.

    PS: The name of my computer is still YVES-PC-WIN7 but it runs on Windows 8 Consumer Preview of course.
