Blank screen when I open a previous project.

  • Unsure what to do in this case, i opened up a project that I've previously used although this time it's not loading anything at all. Anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks.

  • New to Visual Studio?

    Just double click on any file in the "Solution Explorer" on the right to open it.

  • Hi Pilchard2002,

    If you want to open the exist project , you just find your project file and double-click .sln to open your project.

    Or if you have open blank visual studio,  click File menu--- Open  Project/Solution---choose project file and choose .sln ----click open.

    Best Regards,

    Cherry

    Hi Pilchard2002,

    What’s the version of Visual Studio do you use?

    >> i opened up a project that I've previously used although this time it's not loading anything at all

    How do you open the exist project?

    Please close all VS instance, run your VS as administrator, and reopen the exist project again use the following methods:

    • Double click the .sln file of the exist project.
    • Start VS, click File -> Open -> Project/Solution…, choose the exist project file, click Open.

    If the issue persists, please try to open another exist project, how about the result?

    If it works fine, it means this issue caused by the specify project, I suggest you could create a new one.

    If it fails, please have a try with the following to troubleshoot this issue:

    Please run your VS in safe mode (devenv /SafeMode), to make sure that it is not related to any add-ins or extension tools.

    Please restore the IDE’s default settings, optionally resets to the specified VSSettings file with this command line: “Devenv.exe /ResetSettings”. Then, reopen the exist project, check the result.

    In addition, I can’t open the link https://imgur (DOT) com/a/70OJ8, please upload it to the OneDrive, and share the link here.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Regards,
