Help, Cannot Create Class in C# 2005 Beta2!

P: n/a
After uninstalling Visual Studio 2005 Beta2, installing Visual Studio 2005
RC1, uninstalling RC1 and reinstalling Beta2 I am getting the following error:

When I try and create a class I get a message box with the following error
"Could not load type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.CommonIDE.TemplateWizard.W izard'
from assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.CommonIDE, Version=8.0.0.0,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'."

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this problem, I really do not
want to reformat my hard disk.

Thanks,

I've seen similar problems enough times when changing between beta 1 and 2
and the various CTPs in between - it usually points at the fact that you
didn't clean up your system well enough when changing the version. There
are many blog posts on the net that you can find in Google for searches
like "vs 2005 clean system" and similar things. Aaron Stebner has a lot in
his blog, including the "VS 2005 beta cleanup tool". For a start, look at
these two blog posts:

Thanks for the infor, unfortuately I tried the clean up tool and it did not
help. I get the same error as before, I have a log file as suggested but do
not know where to send it.

I guess you could report it in the MS product feedback center at

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/produc...k/default.aspx

As to the tool: of course it's possible that it doesn't work with the
current releases, because they may have introduced new problems, compared
to the CTPs before beta 2, when the tool was created.

In those instances where I've had these problems myself (and the tool
didn't yet exist), the answer was, really: uninstall, then clean up the
system. Make sure you don't forget anything. Make sure again. Make sure
yet again. Install the other version.

As you might have guessed, the complicated part was the cleaning up the
system. There are so many places to look that it's difficult to know, and
remember, them all. But it was possible, and with some patience and
systematic repetition you'll find out what you miss. And next time, better
install these things in a VM :-)
