"Object reference not set to an instance of an object" is a very generic message and could be anything.
Need to see some error details.

Check the "Error List" tab at the bottom of your screen to see if there are any messages there.

None.

But in the status bar of the Error List tab, the message is "Creating Project Database1... project creation failed"

Put a break point some where in your code, run it,  and when it breaks,
press F11 and step through your code, line by line.
If you get an error message, copy any information you can.
