### The project type is not supported by this installation

Hi, We have moved a Visual Studio 2008 project (containing a few web parts) from MOSS 2007 to a SP 2010 server. When we try to load the project in Visual Studio 2008 on the SP 2010 server we see: "The project file xxx cannot be opened. The project type is not supported by this installation". Ok - we then remembered that VSeWSS 1.3 was installed on the MOSS 2007 server when the project was created. Trying to install VSeWSS 1.3 on the SP 2010 server we see: "This product can only be installed if WSS 3.0 has been installed first". What now? Must we install VS 2010 on the SP 2010 server and then convert all VS 2008 projects to VS 2010? Can we (for a while) install solutions (on the SP 2010 server) developed in VS 2008 on MOSS 2007 server?

### The project type is not supported by this installation.

After having installed all the RC1 parts, including "Orcas" and try to create a new project in VisualStudio 2005 (Windows Application, XAML Browser Application or Custom Control Library) I get an error message:

"The project file '.....' cannot be opened.

The project type is not supported by this installation."

I've tried reinstalling everything but it's still giving the same error message.

Could it be because I'm running a swedish version of Windows XP? Although I haven't had this problem with other releases.

VS2005 Team SuiteÃÂ RTM with SP1 Beta - XP SP2 - latest patches

Hi,

I have been learning XAML at the intro level. I had an old version of dotnetfx3 and wpf templates and I could create a project and run it.

Yesterday I removed the old templates and the old framework with a removal tool and installed the RTM framework and new templates.

However now I cannot open create a new project.

The error message I am receiving is:

"The project file c:\documents and settings\renee\localsettings\temp\4t4baj4.dyv\temp\WindowsApplication1 cannot be opened." The project type is not supported by this installation.

I have not installed the extensions. I never have. I don't have enough disk space on the current system.

What's missing?

### "project type is not supported by this installation"

Just installed VS2010 and trying to do some REST web services.  When I try to create a new project of type "WCF Rest service Application" (which I downloaded from the online template gallery), I get "the project type is not supported by this installation".  Interestingly enough, same error is generated when I try to create a project of type "WCF Service Application" (template which ships with VS 2010).

Also came across an EXCELLENT tutorial @ "http://blogs.msdn.com/b/endpoint/archive/2010/01/07/getting-started-with-wcf-webhttp-services-in-net-4.aspx", which has downloadable code.  Guess what, same error.

I am using VS2010 on Win7 x64.  IIS is not installed on the machine - could that be an issue?  I assumed it would use Cassini while in VS.

Thanks for any help,

Joe

My apologies if this is not in the correct forum.  I dont think its related to the WCF, but hey, if I was an expert, I wouldnt be asking all of you, right?  :-)

### Business Intelligence Reports Project in Visual studio 2008 ?

Hi,

### VS 2008 Web Application Project

Hi, I am working on a VS time clock project to be used for student's to clock in and out. When the student clocks in the time/date is saved to a temp table. Upon login out to the login screen for the next user to use I need to save the clocked in time to a permanate table. It is an update from the temp table to the permanate table. However, when the page redirects to the login page, I recieve the dbnull to date is invalid error. Now understand, when the page is redirecting to the login page for the next user, the only way I could figure out to get the browser to forget the sessionstate, was to use a delete statement that removes the data from the perm table, but before it erases it, I need to save it to the permanate database table.

Anyone have a solution they can send my way??

Thanks :)

### Problems converting VS 2003 project to VS 2008

Hi!

I'm having problems converting a VS 2003 project to VS 2008 (tried 2005 as well, same problem). There are several problems;
a) I don't have VS 2003 installed.
b) The project is a web service, however I'm not sure what type of VS project it was created as.
c) The general knowledge about the project setup is..slim.

I get a error message using the conversion wizard, however, I'm not familiar with the tool and I cannot quite find any good information on Google for it, so I am left with a error message I do not understand.

Conversion Issues - myProject.csproj:
Unable to open the Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj'. The Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj' does not exist.

The web service is not intended to run on the dev machine, it is copied to a test or a prod server. However, I do not know how this was done previously. I'm thinking that in order to convert, it has to access the server on which it should run (which is set somehow in a config maybe). But that doesn't actually make any sence..

If anyone could shed light on this, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

### SSRS 2008 Graph Type?

Greetings -

I am required to plot the following graph in an SSRS report.

Sum of Total Credits to be shown on Positive side and total sum of Debits for a month on negative side. I have created a query which retrieves all the expenses for the month and sums them up before feeding the same to the graph for plotting. Both values returned are positive integers.

(Sorry for the diagram below, i tried to paste an image but it didn't work)

### Can Not load WPF project in Visual Studio 2005 on Win7 64 system, says "Project file not supported b

Dear all I am facing an issue in creating new wpf project or loading a WPF project in Visual studio 2005. I have installed Visual Studio 2005 Service pack - 1 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=bb4a75ab-e2d4-4c96-b39d-37baf6b5b1dc&displaylang=en) but still I can not see the option for wpf project  while creating a new project. Generally we can see WPF listing under item File -->New-->Project--> ".Net Framework 3.0" in VS 2005. I have few WPF project and when i try to load them it says "Project file not supported by this Installation". My System Config is given below: OS: Windows 7 (64 Bit) VS: Visual Studio 2005 with Service Pack 1 .Net Framework: 3.5 (By default inbuilt in Win7 OS)   I am suspecting something bugging related to .Net framework 3.0 in Win7. We have one option in control panel to alter .NetFramework 3.5 under "Turn Windows Features on or Off" but there I can not see something related to 3.0 :-(.   Kindly suggest how can I load my existing project and how can enable option to create new wpf Projects.   I saw few solutions suggested by people on following Thread bt most of them related to Windows XP or Vista: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vswpfdesigner/thread/06cf7bca-982c-44cf-aec9-99cf399b3000 Do someone has solution for Windows 7 (64 bit OS)
