Cannot load macro project - invalid or inaccessible macro project file

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

This error pops up the first time a macro is invoked after starting Visual Studio 2008.

Cannot load macro project "" for the following reason:

'H:\mydocuments\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\VSMacros80\MyMacros\MacroProject1\MacroProject1.vsmacros' is an invalid or inaccessible macro project file

This began after I created and deleted a macro project called MacroProject1. I have tried removing the following two related registry keys, but they get recreated automatically:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VSA\9.0\ProjectMRUList\File3:

    Data: vsmacros://H%3A/mydocuments/Visual%20Studio%202008/Projects/VSMacros80/MyMacros/MacroProject1/MacroProject1.vsmacros|{13B7A3EE-4614-11D3-9BC7-00C04F79DE25}
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\vsmacros\OtherProjects7\1

    Data: Path: H:\mydocuments\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\VSMacros80\MyMacros\MacroProject1\MacroProject1.vsmacros

Could not load file or assembly - Web Deployment Project



I have the following projects in a solution :

- A Web Application

- A Class Library

- A Web Deployment project

The Web Application compiles and run fine when I don't go through the Web Deployment Project. However when I try to use that, I get the following error:

Error 1 An error occurred creating the configuration section handler for hibernate-configuration: Could not load file or assembly 'NHibernate' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (F:\Folke\Folke.csproj_deploy\Release\web.config line 4) 1 1 Folke.csproj_deploy

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)

Site File Structure, Folders, Learning project, subweb, web.config

I am just learning asp.net.  I purchased an "ASP.Net 3.5 web programming in C#" book, which I like allot.  I am on chapter 3 and want to complete a shopping cart exercise from the book.  I have to create several folders and files.  The exercise has the files and under the root directory and a few folders below that.  I already have a site that I've been learning on.  Can I create a subfolder on my site and put all the files in there?  Like the subfolder is the root of the project.   Here is list of Folders and files... Code/CartItem.cs Code/Product.cs Data/Cars.mdb Images/car.jpg Cart.aspx Order.aspx Web.config ................................ On my website I want to create a subfolder to keep alll the files in, as so... ShoppingCart/Code/CartItem.cs ShoppingCart/Code/Product.cs ShoppingCart/Data/Cars.mdb ShoppingCart/Images/car.jpg ShoppingCart/Cart.aspx ShoppingCart/Order.aspx ShoppingCart/Web.config ................................ Can I have two web.cong files?, one in the subfolder?  Or do I have to use the single, web.config file in the root directory of the site?  Are there any other pitfalls or trouble I might get into setting up my file structure like this?  Anything I should be aware of? Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike

Should time date stamp on .Asmx file change when project is rebuilt?

I have a web service project. The web service is named Recalc.asmx and it has a code behind file namedRecalc.asmx.vb Now if I make a change to my web service .vb code and then recompile the project, should my Recalc.asmx filebe updated as well? In windows explorer I see that the time date stamp of my Racalc.asmx.vb file changes to the date of the last change.But the time date stamp of the Recalc.asmx file does not change? Why is that? My original thinking was that I would simply need to copy the Recalc.asmx file to the test server. But the date stillshows it's original creation date of 7/1/2010 and not the date of the last rebuild as I was hoping it would do?

Themes/Generic.xaml issue when file is Link from another project


I have two Project A and B that use a Themes project. In the Themes project, I defined a Generic.xaml file. If I run the program on the A project, it works.

But in the second project (B) I don't create the Generic.xaml file but link (add existing item -> add as link) it from the first project (A). When I run this one I got this error :

'/Theme;component/Themes/Generic.xaml' value cannot be assigned to property 'Source' of object 'System.Windows.ResourceDictionary'. Cannot locate resource 'themes/generic.xaml'.  Error at object 'System.Windows.ResourceDictionary' in markup file 'AssemblyProjectB;component/app.xaml' Line 9 Position 37.

If in the second project (B) I create the file instead of linking the generic.xaml created in the first project (A), it works.

Any idea ?


Can't add MDF file to Visual Studio 2010 Silverlight example project.


I have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.  And I've downloaded and installed Sql Server 2008 R2 Express.

I'm going through a Silverlight trainging module and using the 

Silverlight Business Apps: Module 2 - WCF RIA Services

example application.  The database included (as an .mdf file) won't attach in the project.  I get this:

"Connections to SQL Server database files (.mdf) require SQL Server 2005 Express or SQL Server 2008 Express to be installed and running on the local computer.  The current version of SQL Sever Express can be downloaded at the following URL:......"

But of course, I have the most recent version.  Now I did have SQL Server 2005 Express Edition installed before and it wasn't working either.  I got a different error concerning the version of the .mdf file.  In an attempt to resolve this I un-installed the 2005 version.  Now I've got a functioning default instance of Sql Server, but I notice it's not listed as .\SqlExpress as the 2005 version was.

Can someone help me get this working?  Do I need to change the name of the SQL Server instance in order to for Visual Studio to be able to attach?

I also can't attach the file using SQL Server Management Studio, but I think that's because the file has the path to the Log file somehow

wpf project with single source file?


For purposes of submitting sample code to this forum, I want to make VS2008 WPF projects with only 1 source file. I know how to do it with 2. I can make projects with Window1.xaml and Window1.xaml.cs. Is it possible to do it with only Window1.xaml?


Reading in values in text file in a project solution to an array



I have a tab delimited text file that has 6 columns (all integers) and 500 rows (and no column headings) called ProjectData.txt that I have added to my Windows Form Application (c#) (by added I mean I have it in my project solution). 

I have declared an array in my code called ProjectDataArray which has dimensions [500, 6].

I wish to load each column of each row into the array.

All the code I have seen shows how to do this for text files that are not included in the project solution. 

Is this easy to do?

Call DLL Methods from outside the project / Load Dynamic WPF in aspx


Dear All Experts,

for my project, i created a solution with a one aspx page and all of other components are Dynamic load WebUserControls ascx, each user control and related functions are a separate webapplication project.

now i need to use WPF with my project, i dont know how to load the ".xbap" file Dynamically in my page,

also when i tried to use it as iframe, i face the error "System.Security.SecurityException: That assembly does not allow partially trusted callers" which means that i cannot call or use any of my DLL's methods from outside the project invironment (please note that i am not using strong names anywhere), i put [assembly: AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers]  attribute in AssemblyInfo.cs but also i cannot call required functions.

now the questions is:

1. can i associate with WPF (*.xdap) files and load it the same as dynamics user controls?

2. how to call and let my functions work outside the project invironment.
