Visual Studio .NET won't create Solution/Project

I am using Visual Studio .NET and it has been running fine since it's installation.

Recently, it's begun a new behavior that's quite frustrating.

If I choose to create a new solution, the C++ Application Wizard runs fine, asking me what type of project, giving me the screen for options, etc -- but when I click "Finish" it just shuts down the wizard without creating the directory, the files, or anything.  Doesn't even create the files in the project.

I've tried it into an existing directory, and letting it create the directory, I've tried choosing various options in the wizard, and choosing *no* options in the wizard.

This is extremely frustrating because I'm fairly new to C++ development, and I need to create a console win32 application with MFC support, and I don't know how to do it manually.

Note:  .NET will create new projects for any language *except* c++, and it will open an *existing* project -- this seems like a problem with the new project wizard.

Thanks for the help.

I've been using VS.NET for a while to create new C++ projects, and I've never had the problems you're experiencing.

The only things I could offer would be:

1) Make sure you're a Power User or an Administrator if you are in a NT network.

2) Goto the Add/Remove Programs and tell VS.NET to do the repair process.  I'd run a scandisk first.

Seems silly to have to go through a three hour repair install, but, by jove it worked.  

Thanks, Sparticus1701.
