Unable to execute vb.net application


I am unable to execute any vb.net application I create. The application compiles and builds fine, but hangs up when it is run/executed. I tried reinstalling the .net framework; it did not help.

It was working fine until I created a setup project one day and then removed that project from the Solution Explorer in the VS.NET. I suspect that any dll might have got corrupted.

Your guidance and solution will be very helpful to me.

if you have uninstalled any program either yours or someone elses just prior to this install it some system dll must gave got uninstalled
if it just freezes I suspect a code issue, infinit loop possible, why don't you run it in Debug mode and step through the app to see what's causing the hang?
ericsDev: "any vb.net application" would mean the problem is not with the code. its just some uninstaller which uninstalled a dll or the dll got curropted.
Try installing the .net studio / framework after uninstalling it first (not reinstalling it)
