Moving from C# Express to VS2010

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.


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

That is what I am doing.

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.

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.

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

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.
