Microsoft claims you can install VS2010 Express and Pro and they will not interfere with each other, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for me. I installed the following in this order:
- VS2010 C# Express.
- NETMF 4.1.
- NETMF port kit.
- GHI SDK 1.0.11.
Everything worked. Then I installed VS2010 Pro complete, with local docs. Now, Express still works, but when I start a new NETMF project in Pro, two problems occur:
The VS2010 Class Library, Console Application, Device Emulator, and Window Application project templates don’t appear, although all the FEZ/GHI ones are there.
When I select a new “Fez Panda Application”, I get the following error dialog:
[Help] spirals into multiple ‘page not found’ errors. The system got as far as making the empty directory ‘c:\temp\3beozkav.pfl’.
Next I uninstalled and reinstalled the GHI SDK. That didn’t help.
Then on another machine, I installed VS2010 Pro, then #2-#4 in the above sequence, and everything works fine there.
Any suggestions to straighten this out would be appreciated. I really don’t want to uninstall and reinstall VS2010 Pro, since that’s a ~10 hour process (mostly to download the documentation for offline use.) And I’m not even sure that will fix the problem(s.)
