Blend 2.0 (September) fails load project (Shimon Sim) - 12/16/2007 4:10 PM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: Shimon Sim


    Just tried to load project into Blend 2.0 (September)
    I have complex solution with Solution folders (Blend complains here but
    continues) and some Deployment project (Blends complains and stops loading).

    I really didn't want to load the whole solution just one WPF project but it
    didn't work.

    Will anything change with this?
    Thanks,
    Shimon.

    Interesting - I would think that Blend should continue to work with projects 
    it understands, and ignore the rest. We also introduced "don't show this 
    again" checkboxes for the solution folder  and unkonwn project warnings to 
    reduce user annoyance. Apparently that is not the case as you are 
    observing - would it be possible to share the solution and projects (or a 
    set of steps on how I can create these) so we could ensure this does not 
    happen?
    
    Regarding your question - no, this will not change - Blend will 
    automatically find and open the solution when you try to open a project like 
    Visual Studio. The workaround is to create a solution that lives besides the 
    project that you want to open with the same name as the name of the project.

    I removed deployment projects and it worked fine.
    So I guess any solution with Deployment projects in it should fail.
    Thanks

    Thank you - I can reproduce it now. We will file a bug on this. For now, 
    your workaround is to create the addition solution file I suggested.
    
    Thanks,
