Moving from C# Express to VS2010


#1

I’ve just installed VS2010 with the hope of being able to move my NETMF projects across from C# Express.

However, when I try to open my project, I get “The project type is not supported by this installation”

I’ve tried running the NETMF SDK and GHI Installers again (choosing ‘Repair’), to no avail.

Suggestions?


#2

How are you opening the project? Don’t do it from the file system (windows explorer). Instead open the project from within VS2010.


#3

That is what I am doing.


#4

Try un-installing the sdk’s and re-installing them.

That’s worked with a few issues I’ve had in the past going between different versions of Visual Studio.


#5

As Jas suggested reinstall the SDKs as well. The SDKs get associated with the C# Express of VS installation. As I recall if you install VS2010 and the SDKs first then C# Express everything is fine with both but not the other way around.


#6

I think I had something similar in the past. I ended up recreating the project.


#7

Problem solved.

In the end I installed all the GHI SDKs, the NETMF SDK and C#Express before reinstalling all the SDKs again and it works fine now.

Thanks for your help.
