Microsoft Web Developer Express 2010 unable to switch to Desisn View

At one point VWD 2010 express just stopped showing the Design View and we can only use the Source View (Split is also not working). We tried Repairing the installation first, then reinstalled but the problem is still there.

The OS is Windows 7 SP1

The only error that I get is this one in event viewer (when trying to add a new file):

Faulting application name: VWDExpress.exe, version: 10.0.40219.1, time stamp: 0x4d5f2a69

I missed that the OS is Windows SP1
Are you sure it's not a corrupted web design?   If you haven't already, I'd suggest that you create a new web design project to see for sure

It was a broken project. I fixed the adding file issue by replacing the ntdll.dll  with the original one from the windows cd, and the split view issue by importing the project in another developer studio and resaving it.
