When I include a Service Factory Modelling Edition Model Project in my VS2008 solution the  Configuration Manager does not display Configuration, Platform and Build values for all projects in the solution.

If I unload the Model Project then the values in these columns magically  reappear.

See attahced images.

The following thread mentions that it is a bug but wondering if anyone has found a fix

Thanks.

Follow below and give a try.

1. Edit your project "Solution File"
2.Get the model project GUID from the section project....endproject section which will be in the begining.
3.Go to "GlobalSection(ProjectConfigurationPlatforms) = postSolution" section
4.For each GUID there will be 4 or 5 settings , copy one secion and replace the GUID with your Model Project GUID.
5.Reload ur project
6.Edit you configuration manager, all should look fine.

Tried what you recommended but had no effect.

This section already there ...

Project("{1DF4D691-79FD-4E3E-B7A6-A1A5DC772BBD}") = "PanoramaWebServicesModelProject", "Web Services\PanoramaWebServicesModelProject\PanoramaWebServicesModelProject.ssfproduct", "{56E6B83F-E069-484E-87C4-300323FFECDA}"
EndProject

and added this at the end of GlobalSection(ProjectConfigurationPlatforms) = postSolution ...

Looks like for the model project it has allmost 39 entries. Is the number of entries(39) same for other projects for eg. "AdminModule" ? if less then add those missing entries to the modal project or it is more ?

Looks like you had it right the first time.

The project section has two GUIDs at I copied the wrong one to the ProjectConfigurationPlatforms section.

Project("{1DF4D691-79FD-4E3E-B7A6-A1A5DC772BBD}") = "PanoramaWebServicesModelProject", "Web Services\PanoramaWebServicesModelProject\PanoramaWebServicesModelProject.ssfproduct", "{56E6B83F-E069-484E-87C4-300323FFECDA}"
EndProject

I copied 1DF4D691-79FD-4E3E-B7A6-A1A5DC772BBD but should have copied 56E6B83F-E069-484E-87C4-300323FFECDA.

Looks good now and I have the configuration settings back when the Model Project is loaded.

Guess this is a bug in Visual Studio but can work around it now.

Thanks for your help.
