Unable to write manifest. Invalid syntax. ??ClickOnce??

    Question

  • i'm rather puzzled.

    i have a program that has been in use for 2 years

    and as recently as yesterday i was able to complie and run the code with no issues.

    now today with no changes i an suddenly unable to build the code from visual studio 2008

     

    attempts to compile return

    Unable to write manifest 'obj\Debug\Presenter.exe.manifest'. Invalid syntax.

     

    the first thing i tried was performing a "Clean" and a "Rebuild" but to no effect, next i wiped both the Bin and Obj folder so they can be rebuilt. still no effect

    next a full system reboot again no help

     

    i find it hard to beleive that its the .net frame work as i can compile other projects yet how can it not be as the .manifest is a auto generated file that i have not touched

     

    any advise on tracking down this problem?

  • Hi MikeTimes,

     

    Thanks for your post.

    Based on your description, it seems like an environment issue,

    you can try command

    devenv /resetuserdata

    and run VS in safemode via

    devenv /safemode

    to avoid third party extensions loaded.

    If it doesn't help, the best approach is to reinstall your visual Studio.

    Hope my reply helps.
