MS Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition: Preview/Debugging No Longer Function

Hello experts,

does anyone have any experience using MS Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition?

I installed the program on my box (AMD 3800+, 2GB RAM, Win XP x64 ed.)
and for awhile it worked great, but now for some reason I cannot get the website
to "preview" whether I choose to debug or not (F5 nor Ctrl F5).

I tried everything I could and finally resorted to uninstalling and reinstalling the program.

The site does not work from Localhsot nor if I CopyWebSite to a remote server via FTP.

I am lost.  Can anyone conjecture any possibilities, or even tell me what you need to see from me to start working on it?

Thanks,
Tom

I've had a few weird things happen that normally trace back to the .net runtime.

Try This:

Go to control panel / add-remove programs, select the .net 2 runtime, click the "remove" and select "Repair" when asked.  Reboot your system and see if that doesn't solve the problem.

Are you running XP x64 or a 32 bit version of XP?  There's actually (if my memory serves me correctly) an additional set of components if you're running it on x64

(Sorry - dumb question, I should have read your post more carefully!)

Have you checked your system logs?  (Under control panel > administrative tools > Event Viewer)  There should be something in the application log regarding the failure.  

Is there an actual error you receive or nothing at all seems to happen?  What's your default web browser?  Do you run a firewall, and if so, which one?  Which antivirus are you using? (many - Norton in particular - have script blocking components).

Thanks naisnet.

There's no error, it's just displaying a blank webpage,
like the script isn't executing.
I use MSIE 6.0.
No firewall or anti-virus on this PC.

I don't see anything specifically on that, but there's something you can try that I always use "last resort" - if you to to http://www.sysinternals.com/ and download regmon & filemon, each one will tell you what's trying to be accessed (and failing) when you try and display the site.  I'd try "filemon" first, then "regmon" second.  Let me know if you see any failures related to VS2005, and I could probably provide you with a little better information.

Hi John

I got this message:

WMI ADAP was unable to load the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_perf.dll performance library due to an unknown problem within the library: 0x0

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Any clues in here?

Tom

That would do it!  I would:

1) Completely uninstall the .net 2 framework (from the control panel)
2) Reboot
3) Make sure that you manually delete everything from the v2.0.50727 directory on down (you may get a locked file or two that can be ignored as long as it's not the aspnet_perf.dll)
4) Reboot again
5) Download and install a fresh copy of the .net 2 framework

The repair operation should have detected an error in the performance library DLL (this is the dll accessed when you run perfmon and monitor the asp.net 2 framework), but for some reason it didn't .
