I'm posting here, because the Interdev board is dead, and I need some help from those who use VID6.

For some reason, the program just crashed and I can't restart. If I do, the error "DEVENV.exe has generated errors and will be closed. Must be restarted." It won't restart.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled 3 times and it's still not working. I've even cleaned some keys in the registry. Uninstalled and reinstalled IIS...nothing.

HELP! What do you think?? Thanks

It's not stupid question liebrand.
I've experienced the same thing, and it really made me frustrated till finally it's fixed after I've installed Visual Studio 6 SP 5.

4ad, install your Visual Studio again, and after that install SP 5.
You may download SP 5 from this site:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/sp/vs6sp5/default.asp

Hopefully it helps you, since I do know how frustrated it is...

I tried both suggestions and installed with SP5, but it still doesn't work.

They're clean installs. I don't understand. ??!!

i ran into the exact same problem once... for some reason, visual studio stopped working - and it wasn't a virus because i ran anti virus a million times...

finally, i got sick of it. so i formatted my hard drive and started over from scratch. now everything works fine.

of course, this is an extreme solution....

Hohoho... reformat always the best solution. ^_^

Anyway 4Dad, which of SP5 that you install?
Have you download all the whole package of Visual Studio 5?

I'm running w2k, and installed SP5 off of a cd-rom that I got in the mail from msdn earlier this week. I didn't download any of the visual studio 5. (I think it's like 300MB, and it would take me a week on a 38.6 Kbps modem.

Microsuck knows about the bug. WHY can't they offer a WORKING fix?

I've been trying everything I can think of for 12 hours now...

It may be your VBscript version. Look at this link:
