If you install the GAX ( Guidance Automated Extensions ) package on a machine running Visual Studio 2008, you can see the Projet Creation Failed message on the Visual Studio status bar every time you try to create a new project, or to add a new object on a existing solution.
Apparently this is a problem with a dll redirection that GAX adds to the devenv.exe.config file on the installation. To solve this, we only have to remove this redirection. To do this:
- Open the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe.config file on the notepad.( don't forget to open the notepad as administrator, otherwise you'll not be able to save the file on this directory )
- Press Control+F and search for "Microsoft.VisualStudio.TemplateWizardInterface"
- Comment this item or delete it from the file. The piece where this line is found, should look like this:
<!-- assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.VisualStudio.TemplateWizardInterface" publicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a" culture="neutral" / -->
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-184.108.40.206" newVersion="220.127.116.11" />
- Save the file, and open Visual Studio 2008 again. And no more excuses not to be working! =)
UPDATE: if you don't have the above line in your file or if this does not work for you, please read the comments below to see other ways to fix this error. And thanks for all the visitors that shared their finds here :)
Another Wix 3.0 error, this one happens if you are running the v3.0.2925.0 or earlier, on Windows Vista.
This error seems to be some problem on Wix 3.0 itself, and to solve this you'll need to install one of the nightly builds versions, that you can find on the following address: http://wix.sf.net/releases.
But, before you leave my blog, and run away to download the latest build, there's one little detail, there's a specific version you'll need to install. I've tested all avaliable versions ( on 11/13/2007 ) and the only working version is the v3.0.3307.0 version, dated from 09/07/2007.
Don't ask me why, this is one of those errors that you simple don't understand.
This error happens 'cause of some validation scripts written in vbscript that Wix runs, and, for an unknow reason, the vbscript dll is not registered on some Windows Vista installations.
So, to solve this, we have only to register the correct dll. To do this, open the command prompt, as an administrator and type:
And it's done! This will solve an installation error of some of the ADOBE's products on Windows Vista too. But I really don't remember the error code on those products.
Esse erro acontece porque alguns dos scripts de validação do Wix são escritos em vbscript, e, por algum motivo, em algumas instalações do Windows Vista essa DLL não vem registrada!
Para resolver esse problema, abra o prompt de comando como administrador e digite o seguinte:
Pronto, isso também resolve o problema dos produtos da linha da ADOBE não instalarem no Windows Vista, mas não me recordo o número do erro nesses produtos.
Well.. off course that on my first post here at http://weblogs.asp.net/felipeferreira I'll thank Joe Stagner for the opportunity to be posting here at weblogs.asp.net. I'm still making some adjustments and getting familiar with this blog, but will try to publish some tips that I've on my old blog today.
