Unable to start any new project from a fresh install of Visual Studio 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • As requested, I'm opening this thread to discuss the following issue:

    After installing Visual Studio Premium 2012, I'm able to get in just fine and I'm able to open existing projects from VS 2010.  However, when I attempt to create a new project, I get the following error:

    "Visual Studio does not have permissions to read the template information from the system registry. This is often caused by registry permission problems."

    In attempting to locate a fix for this issue, I ran across This thread.  I tried all the suggestions mentioned there but alas, I still have the issue.  

    Things I've tried:

    1.  Reinstalling VS 2010.

    2.  Performing the registry hack found in the thread mentioned above

    3.  Ensured I was running as Administrator, UAC turned off.

    4.  Rebooting computer.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated! :)

    Regards,

    Fletcher B.

  • Hi,

    You can try script on this link: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx

    Its almost same script with one more line and output error for further checking.

    Also try to repair your VS 2012 installation and install all updates.

    Or try it manually to give permission:

    Start regedit
    right click HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT -> Permissions
    Click Add...
    Click Advanced...
    Click Find Now
    Select "Users" and Click "OK"
    Again "OK"
    Give Users "Full Control"
    Click "OK",  this can take a while

    Reboot your computer.

  • Thanks guys!  

    The ultimate answer was that I needed to re-install Windows 7.  I hadn't done so since, well, ever and I've had the computer for over two years.  The above answer did help, however, in that I was able to progress a little further in creating a new project.  Unfortunately, once created VS 2012 would just lock up on me.  

    We're all good now though, so thanks again! 

    Regards,
