    When I'm trying to load project, it says "The project type is not supported by this installation." I have visual studio 2010. Do I need to install some additional extras to VS?

    Sorry about that... Due to all my blogging and projects I look at I have just about everything installed.

    Yes, you'll need the Visual Studio 2010 SDK installed (And be using VS Pro or better)

    Background: Each project contains a number of "Project types" that it needs. When you get that error it means VS can't find one or more of these types.

    Here's the type's from this project (in the CSProg file)


    And the first one is:

    Extensibility Project

    So you'll need the Visual Studio 2010 SDK ( or Visual Studio 2010 SP1 SDK ( and since that requires VS Professional...

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you, it works now.
    I have VS2010 Professional, because I am student and we got it at school.
    But it didn't work with VS 2010 without SP1. Without SP1 all commands were loaded, but when I tried some shortcut nothing happen, just blank screen. With SP1 it works fine. So now can I study the code :) Thanks again for help.

    I always tell people that the mouse is the keyboard for morons.

    I want something that kind of does the opposite. When I do something that has a shortcut equivalent then show that. So that I can hopefully remember and use it the next time.
