Dear Experts:

I created a simple project last night using my home computer.

When  I tried to open  the project at other computer this morning, I got the above error message.

What did I wrong? What is the solution?  What do I need to do to avoid the problem?

Thanks a lot!

Update from duta:

I got the same error message when I tried to create a new project at the other computer (which is not my home computer).

Thanks!

So there are 2 computers that exhibit this problem?
Or is it the same computer?

It sounds like a bad install of Visual Studio if it is the same computer...

I get the error message not when I create or open a regular visual project.

I get the message when I created or open a Pocket PC 2003 (Visual Basic > Smart Device) as seen in the attached JPG images.

Thanks!

The problem is resolved after reinstalling MS Framework.Net 2.0.

Thanks a lot!
