Package Load Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tryed several times to install and uninstall VB2005 Express but I always get the error:
    "Package Load Failure
    Package "Visual Studio XML Editor Package" has failed to load properly {GUID=a guid}.

    Note that during a "Repair" I got an error in Framework 2.0 installation. But then it went on.

    The above failure does not allow to open a project nor to create a new project

    Thanks for help

  • Many thanks, however I solved the problem. It was caused by a not correct installation of Framework 2.0. Unfortunately when I tried to reinstall or repair it, I got a system error.
    Then I downloaded the very useful tool dotnetfix_cleanup from: http://astebner.sts.winisp.net/Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip
    I launched it, I reinstalled Framework2.0 and everything works perfectly

  • This is the result of a missing registry key(s) and it sounds as if you did not get a full install last time you installed visual studio.  Have you tried a system restore?  Unfortunately, it might be that you have to flatten your box and start with a clean state before trying to install again.
