I just installed Visual studio 2008 on my computer.
I created a new website. In that website, I added a master page.
But an error is displayed as given below.
The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131018)
I could not add new items in the website even if the master page is not created.
I mean I could not add new button or label anything.
Please help me...
Thanks in advance.

Solution 1

Sounds like a broken installation. Maybe reinstall .NET and/or VS 2008 and remove any plug-ins.
Also see here[^].

I did that.. I installed it. Then i got this problem.. So i uninstalled it and reinstalled.. But i got the same error. I would like to say one thing that I am using Windows 7 in my computer. Will it be a problem for Windows 7?
