When I try to open an .sln file in MS visual C# 2005 express edition, the system shows this messenger:

"The application for project 'c://...' is not installed".

What can I do when something like this happens

Do you know the type of the project that it is erroring on

Chances are it is a non C# (or C# ASP.NET) project. Unfortunatly due to built in limitations, each version of Express is only able to view projects of the language that it supports, unlike the higher versions of Visual Studio that let you mix and match project types to your hearts desire within a single solution.

I am getting the same error when I try to load a C# project or even create a new one. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times, but it still gives the error.

The error started after I tried to load a corrupted project file, with folder names that were not right. It told me it couldn't find some file (don't remember) and that it had to turn something off. It further said I would be able to turn it back on with a command line option.

It seems the ability to load C# projects was what it turned off, but unfortunately I can't find that command line option now. Anyone know what it is, or where I can find it

Thanks

David
