• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

no "open file/project" dialog in VS2010 RTM ?



(cross posting into this forum, the other forum is being closed apparently)

hi there

when i select

  • "File->Open->Project/Solution..." or
  • "File->Open->File..." or
  • "theme -> customize -> import"

does not display a file open dialog box. The toolbar button for the equivalent action also does not do anything. The IDE window will flash breifly as if it is opening the dialog, but then goes back to normal (under windows Aero, with dual monitor)

however, if i change it to windows 7 basic theme, the same thing will happens, but there are different error dialog pop up at each of above:

  • "the operation could not be completed. ClassFactory cannot supply requested class"
  • "Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {DC1C5A9C-E88A-4dde-A5A1-60F82A20AEF7} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: 8004011"

however the open file dialog seems to work fine in any other applications (including VS2008)... any idea ?

thanks in advance
