Practical solution

Introduction

This short advice can save a lot of time searching for solutions: 'How to open project properties page (Microsoft VS C# 2008 or other) if it did not load?'

Advice

  1. Open <View><Output> window 'YourNameProject' Microsoft Visual Studio.
  2. Try open Progect Properties Page (<Project><YourNameProject Properties...> or <Solution Explorer><Click Right Button Mouse YourNameProject><Properties>). Is not opened?
  3. See output in the Output window. I have for example: "The Visual Studio Settings and Project Designers Package ({67909B06-91E9-4F3E-AB50-495046BE9A9A}) did not load because of previous errors. For assistance, contact the package vendor. To attempt to load this package again, type 'devenv /resetskippkgs' at the command prompt." The key solution it's a string type 'devenv /resetskippkgs' at the command prompt.
  4. Copy/paste devenv /resetskippkgs to Run command prompt (click <Start button of Windows><Run><OK>).
  5. Microsoft Visual Studio is running.
  6. In Start Page, open 'YourNameProgject' and now you have access to the Properties Page 'YourNameProject'.
