Cannot Create New Visual Studio 2010 Project (of any type)

Posted 19 July 2011 - 09:35 AM

Hi all,

I tried creating a new VS 2010 project and opened the new project window, only to find that the ok button is darkened in the new project window. I was able to use this installed version to create a new project last week and am interested in why it's failing now. I tried resetting settings by going through the tools menu to import and export settings and choosing reset settings in the wizard (a fix I found in another forum), but that didn't work.

Thanks for the assisstance!

Is this for a web project or desktop app?

I just wanted to create a simple C# form app

I just tried running: devenv/setup in the command prompt, from the default directory of VisualStudio 10.0\Common7\IDE, and I am still unable to create (any) type of project

I would assume you need write access to the directory where you are trying to save the project. I've never seen it happen, but it's possible that VS takes permissions for the destination folder into account when enabling the OK button.
