Can't view webforms in design view in visual Studio 2005

P: n/a
Hi,
I have just installed visual studio 2005 professional edition (evaluation
version). However it will not allow me to view webforms in a website project
in design view. I can just see the HTML and the code behind, but no graphical
design view, which is pretty fundamental for development. I have .net
framework 2.0 service pack 1 installed. When I click on view designer it
appears to be locked, although there is no message. This happens on all my
existing website projects

please help, I'm desperate.
Thanx
Robert

I found the answer for myself, I uninstalled .net framework 2.0 service pack
1 and it all worked fine. I'm surprised more people don't have this problem.

Have you installed Visual Studio SP1 ?

Also, if you're using Vista, this update is essential :

Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update for Windows Vista:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Updating your complete environment would help you more
than maiming the .Net Framework just so you can use an earlier version.
