  • Question


    I get the following error when I try to open a project in platform builder

    Could not load type 'Microsoft.PlatformBuilder.Automation.OSDesignProject2' from assembly "Microsoft.PlatformBuilder.Automation.6.00, Version=,Culture=neutral,PlublicKeyTocken=31bf3856ad365e35'.

    I am running XP and have installed in the following order:

    Visual Studio 2005 Standard
    Visual Studio 2005 SP1 
    Windows Embedded CE 6.0 (Evaluation Edition) 
    Windows Embedded CE 6.0 SP1 
    Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 
    Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 


    Any ideas?

  • Hmm, does PB work with VS2005 standard?  You might need to move to Professional...

  • I removed and re-installed everything with VS2005 pro and still get the same error.

  • Closing the loop on this thread - based on your later posts, it looks like your problem was caused by installing the Compact 7 beta bits side by side with PB6 on this machine.  Continue this discussion there...
