I'm having a lot of issues not only with Visual Basic 2008 but with other programs as well on my Windows XP SP2 operating system. I googled this subject but couldn';t find what I was looking for.
This is what happened. When I tried to test an application on Visual Basic 2008, it comes up with this infamous error:
Error while trying to run project: Could not file or assembly "WindowsApplication1" or any of its dependencies. The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest.
I know it's not a Visual Studio problem and it's not a project problem. This happens to ALL projects even when I start a new project. And tried renaming my project as well. I recently re-installed my Operating system fresh. I firstly loaded all the Dot Net Frameworks 1, 1.1, 2, 3 and 3.5 then Visual Studio. Within the first thirty minutes I tested an application and it works fine - any project works fine! I left it for an hour while doing other stuff on the computer and tried to test the application again. And the error came up! I got so annoyed and it's just a fresh PC!
This is odd - I try to install a software that requires Dot Net 3.5 and asks me to install it when I already have it installed! It won't install it again because it's already installed, and it requires an internet connection which I don't have on my windows xp operating system (not the one i'm using now).
And I don't know where the log files are. I'm supposed to have FusionLog or something but it's not included here.
Can anybody help please?
