Cannot create .Net 3.5 project with VS2K8

Feb 26, 2009 at 11:04 PM
I've tried this with every option possible.

Simply put, when i select a 3.5 project and try to create it -- i get a file not found error.

At first, I was getting an error because the keyfile i was using was actually in the directory that stsdev was trying to copy it to.

However now that i've moved the snk from the directory, I get the following:

Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)
   at System.Reflection.Assembly.nLoadFile(String path, Evidence evidence)
   at System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadFile(String path)
   at stsdev.SolutionBuilder.set_TargetPath(String value)
   at stsdev.SolutionBuilder.InitializeSolution()
   at stsdev.SolutionBuilder.RunCreateSolutionWizard()
   at stsdev.Program.Main(String[] args)

creating the same project with 3.0 works fine.

oh yah -- so my question is .. after creating the 3.0 project .. is there any harm in changing the project to 3.5?

Same problem, unfortunately. VS2008, .NET 3.5 . No problems creating a .NET 3.0 solution.

I guess the only real problem are the references, which must be changed afterwards, but it is strange to get such error.

Version 1.4 has now been released and includes this fix.
