Are you sure you have the correct PROJECT Type?...

Try creating a new project; does the problem occur there too?

Yes, i am sure, application type is 'Windows Forms Application'.
I created other new project, the 'Enable application framework'  was enabled ?

So what's wrong with my project?

I couldn't begin to tell you what is wrong with your project...   =\

Though I have seen many previous posts on "odd" behavior only occurring in ONE project.  They are usually chalked up to a "corrupt" project.  Some solutions involve creating a new project and adding the previous project files one by one and re-compiling in an attempt to find the "bad" one.  Sometimes it is the project file itself!
