Areautomation and Extensibility supported on Express version (VS 2012)


  • Hello everyone,

    I hit an issue I cannot resolved currently when I tried to launch IDE on Web Express build using automation code .It failed with those error :

    Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {4CF6EFFB-DFAC-49ED-91EB-39B1165AE646} failed due to the following error:
    80080005 Server execution failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80080005 (CO_E_SERVER_EXEC_FAILURE)).<o:p></o:p>

    This is my code I tried :

    • Type type = System.Type.GetTypeFromProgID("VWDExpress.DTE.11.0");
    • Type type = System.Type.GetTypeFromProgID("VWDExpress.DTE");

           DTE dte = (DTE)System.Activator.CreateInstance(type, true);

    As I know ,it did not supported on Visual Studio 2005. But I hope to know if it is still did not support on express build (VS2012) .
