In start >> run >> type the following

regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\mscoree.dll"

Let me know if that resolves you issue.

mscoree.dll belongs to the .net framework. I would recommend trying to run a repair on the .net framework. Worst case scenario would be uninstall VS 2008, reboot, uninstall .net framework, reboot, reinstall .net framework and then reinstall VS 2008.  

In terms of fixing the problem, what action have you taken thus far?

Try downloading the file from the following link:

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl....shtml?mscoree

Then, backup the existing file in C:\Windows\system32\mscoree.dll and then replace it with the one you downloaded.

Then try your programs again. If it still doesn't work then go to start->run and type in:
regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\mscoree.dll"

and try the programs again

Searched internet. Issue was in the .net framework 2.0.
Issue was to manually repair/re install.
Followed the instructions
