Fix Visual Studio form error

Posted June 26th, 2015 in Computers
Fix error stating 'There is no editor available for "C:Documents and SettingsStevenLocal SettingsApplication DataTemporary ProjectsWindowsApplication1Form1.vb" Make sure the application for the file type (.vb) is installed'. This error can occur after you have been successfully using programs such as Visual Basic, but one day when you open a form in the Forms Designer you receive this error. There may be many things causing this error, however one method to fix the problem is to reset the settings.

Steps to fix the error stating 'There is no editor available for...'

  1. Open up a command prompt, and navigate to the C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8.0Common7IDE folder (replace 8.0 with your version).
  2. Enter the command ''devenv.exe /resetsettings'' (without the quotes) and hit enter. This will open Visual Studio, and you should now be able to successfully open the projects that previously displayed this error.

If this does not work, you can try to repair the installation by going to the windows Control Panel, choose Add/Remove Programs, find Visual Studio and select the 'repair' option.
