The components required to enumerate web references are not installed on this computer. Please re-install Visual studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

     I got following exception twice in last 30 days.

    "The components required to enumerate web references are not installed on this computer. Please re-install Visual studio"

    This exception occurs when I change existing web reference Url and point to a new asmx. Why is it asking to re-install visual studio? I would like to avoid re-installing vs 2005 if possible.

    Thanks

  • Hi

    did anyone get anywhere with this error ?

    All was well with my VS2005 until I published a web site - since then I can't add or update any web references without seeing this error !

    ---stop press ---

    solution in post PostID=107222 worked like a charm !

    close VS2005, start | run

    devenv /resetskippkgs

    No more web refrerence errors after this point.



    Thanks,

    NM.

  • Same thing:

    devenv /resetskippkgs

    Works for VS2008.

  • Helped me too.

    While working on different projects I had installed VS2008 first, then at a later time installed VS2005 and, finally, on top of all that I had to install VS2003.NET. :(

    These regressive installs must have screwed up the original VS2008 associations and caused this error.

    Thanks for the tip.
