VSPackage problem, how to troubleshoot file.myproj is not supported by this version of application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Isolated Shell application with a Package that has project type defined using MPF Framework. When I click File - New I do see my template but when I hit OK, it gives me the error message

       C:\Path\To\project.myproj cannot be opened because project type (.myproj) is not supported by this version of the application.

     I have the Project related attributes added to my Package class. How do I troubleshoot this ?

  • Hi Fahad,

    As the error mentioned:

     C:\Path\To\project.myproj cannot be opened because project type (.myproj) is not supported by this version of the application

    The project is still not recognized by Visual Studio. After you have used the MPF, have you register your project type?

    Steps about what you have done may help you know more details about your problem and then we will be able to track the problem.

    The recommend way of fix this issue would be read through this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb166376.aspx Creating Project Types
