View Full Version : IS DevStudio is Blank

06-29-2004, 12:51 PM
There was a previous post with reference to my problem and I wanted to know if there were any updates concerning it. The thread is here: http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?threadid=111132

The end of the thread makes mention of the file "ismsi.nav" in the directory "...\Program\0409", and, if it's missing, could cause this problem. Well, that file is missing from that directory.

When I open DevStudio, the IDE appears blank (only white panels are displayed). The log file repeats the following two errors:
D:\BldRoot\source\src\iside\iside.cpp 974: Could not load picture D:\Program Files\InstallShield\DevStudio9\Program\0409\vbISToday.gif

D:\BldRoot\source\src\iside\iside.cpp 1000: Could not load picture D:\Program Files\InstallShield\DevStudio9\Program\0409\vbISToday.gif

This image does exist in the location specified.

I am using DevStudio 9 and have Internet Explorer version 6 with the following fixes:
SP1, Q330994, Q824145, Q832894, and Q837009

Thank you for any help you are able to offer.

I've since tried to uninstall and reinstall IS DevStudio and receive the error 0x80040706 which is referenced here:

I've also tried the 'Check for Updates' option within the IDE and nothing happens.

I am currently at a standstill as I cannot open any projects. Any advice would be most helpful.

I have seen the error occur when oleaut32.dll get unregistered on the system in question.

To fix the problem re-register oleaut32.dll.

regsvr32.exe oleaut32.dll

Hope this helps
