I am having problems with running VS 2008 Professsional edition on a Windows XP SP2 machine which also has VS 2003 and VS 2005 installed on it. I am trying to evaulate VS 2008 for our development group for creating and supporting .NET 2.0,
3.0 and 3.5 application using our in-house process. We created a global VBScript that creates a generic solution with all the neccessary projects to creating a new .NET application.
Note: I am okay with removing VS 2005 (have not tried it yet). But I need to keep VS 2003 because we have a lot of 1.1 application to support. I have also tested our process on a clean install of WinXP SP2 without VS 2003 and VS 2005, and
it works great....
First Problem: The HTML Designer and Spilt View does not work.
When I try to switch from source to deisgn view for an aspx page, the HTML designer will stop responding. Also, the spilt view feature will not work at all. I did notcie the following warning in my application event log:
Source: Visual Studio - VsTemplate
One or more Visual Studio templates do not match any installed project packages.
Second problem: Issues with compiling project
Sporadically, I have been unable to compile my solution in VS 2008 and recieve the following compiler error: error 4 Internal Compiler Error: stage 'BEGIN' web. Also, the following error has shown up in the application event log:
Source: Microsoft (R) Visual C# 2008 Compiler
The description for Event ID ( 1000 ) in Source ( Microsoft (R) Visual C# 2008 Compiler ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able
to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: devenv.exe, 9.0.21022.8, 47317b3d, ntdll.dll, 5.1.2600.2180, 411096b4, 0, 000111de.
I tried to perfrom a search online and barely found anything regarding this issue. If anyone else has expereinced this, please let me know.

I had the same problem when I tried loading up a web page that had a master page. It just stuck on the message 'Loading master page...' for quite a while (a few minutes maybe) and then I just killed VS and went back in and tried it again and it loaded up
- still slow, but not like the first time. Once I got it loaded in design mode, it switched to split mode no problem and instantaneously. I just tried another page to make sure and it took maybe 2 minutes to load up, but I didn't have to kill VS and restart.
Guess I was just more patient.

Did this behavior occur everytime when you opened an existing/new project in VS 2008 or did it occur the first time you open VS 2008 after installation? My HTML Designer does not even respond after 2 minutes. It just hangs and eventually crashes VS 2008.
I am going to try the repair feature to see it helps the situation.
Do you also have VS 2005 and VS 2003 installed along with VS 2008?

It only occured the first time. I have all 3 installed.

VS 2008 goes through an "Initializing Toolbox" process during the first time you open a project after you installed it. I have seen other posts where people reported this process takes a few minutes on their workstation.
I just finished the repair process on VS 2008 and the HTML designer still does not work.

I just finished the repair process for VS 2008 and design view still does not work. But, this error event did show up in the application event log:
Source: Microsoft Visual Studio

Hopefully someone higher up is monitoring and will pick this up.

Yeah, I hope so. I also posted this problem on the MSDN forums too. Thanks for posting.

With the designer it may help uninstalling Microsoft Web Authoring Component in control panel and reinstalling from DVD\WCU, run WebDesignerCore.exe and give it about 10 minutes, setup doest not have UI.

Mikhail - Is there a way to determine that the WebDesignerCore.exe is running in the background since it does not have a UI status bar?
