View Full Version : VS Integration Breaks On Uninstall
04-11-2007, 02:19 PM
I had IS12 installed and I installed IS2008. Upon removal of IS2008 my Visual Studio said that program that handles ISPROJ was not installed.
Is there a way to restore the previous relationship when you uninstall IS2008? I'm trying a repair of IS12 right now to see if it restores the integration.

Running a repair on the IS12 installation should restore the integration for IS12.
I am pretty sure the reason that you are seeing this because IS12 used the Registry table for associating the .ISPROJ extension but I changed IS2008 to use the MSI Extension/ProgID/Verb tables instead, as it should be. I am sure that I have created a break between the two installs by doing so since the data is in different components. Perhaps we could make a .reg file available that will restore the association if that would be more helpful than the directive to repair IS12.

Running repair did get me back in business, althought I did notice something else.....
When IS12 and IS2008 was installed, there were two icons in the splash screen of VS showing IS was installed. Now that I removed IS2008 and repaired IS12, there are no icons.
Doesn't affect operations, but something I noticed..... :-)
