Unable to load project

Apr 24, 2012 at 5:44 AM

Hi guys,

I have a problem loading the solution.

The test project loads correctly, but the main project OdeToFood gives this error:

"The Web project "OdeToFood" requires missing web components in order to load." and stops loading

VS2010 seems to get the missing components from web... but no message... and no solution.

Any Idea?

Thanks in advance

VS2010 should launch the web installer - did you see the web installer? 

If not, the ASP.NET MVC 3 install should give you everything you need.

Visual Studio ask: "Would you like to download and install them using the Web Platform Installer now?"

I answer yes... but nothing happens. VS says that the project is unavailable because cannot be loaded.

I have already installed the ASP.NET MVC3 "AspNetMVC3ToolsUpdateSetup.exe" and using correcty (as a beginner... I mean);

so... I'm not able to understand what is missing! Is there a log where to find what is wrong?

Solution is here: http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/630557/vs2010-sp1-missing-components-message/

Make sure the Web Platform Installer is installed. I added IIS 7.5 Express and IIS Recommended Configuration from the WPI and OdeToFood project works now.
