VC++ 9.0 error: Failed to create .NET Frameworks PropertyGrid

    Question

  • Hi there!
    I have Vista Business edition and a Visual C++ Proffesional 2008 installed. But every time I try to get a C++ project properties window I get this in the output window:
    Code Snippet


    Code Snippet

    The Windows Forms Designer Package ({7494682B-37A0-11D2-A273-00C04F8EF4FF}) did not load because of previous errors. For assistance, contact the package vendor. To attempt to load this package again, type 'devenv /resetskippkgs' at the command prompt.



    The error in the message box is:
    Code Snippet

    Failed to create .NET Frameworks PropertyGrid component.
    Please verify that the common language runtime and .NET frameworks are properly installed.

  • I am getting inpatient. So far I realized that the problem is caused by a recent installation of VC++ 8.0. I uninstalled it and right after that I got the problem above. I tried many proposed solutions - repairing and reinstalling VC++ 9.0, the .NET framework - nothing helped me. Even the "ttool" didn't find any issues. Do you have any ideas?
    Thanks in advance!

  • Please try to repair your .NET Framework 2.0/3.0 within your Vista: How to repair the .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 on Windows Vista: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/03/26/how-to-repair-the-net-framework-2-0-and-3-0-on-windows-vista.aspx

    And FYI: .NET Framework 3.5 Installation validation tool: http://blogs.msdn.com/aaronru/archive/2007/11/29/net-framework-3-5-installation-validation-tool.aspx

     

    After .NET Framework is repaired, run the command line: devenv /resetskippkgs to fix the error.

     

    If yo have further problem, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Thanks.
