Xporter/vo Gives incompatible project

Post by BenWoestenburg »

Hi guys,

I have tried to migrate the explorer example from Vo to X# by following the documention in Getted started. When I open de SLN in Visual Studio I get the folowing message:
This project is incompatible with the current edition of VS.

I use VS 2019, V 4.8.03752 and xPorter V 2.0.0.0

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Ben,
Did you install VS 2019 after installing X#?
You can check that in the Help Menu of VS 2019. If you don't see the entry "XSharp Documentation" in that menu, then you need to rerun the installer.

Robert,

I assume you mean the installer of X#. There was no Xsharp documentation so I have installed X# again but still no Xsharp documentation in the help menu.

Ben,

Did you see the option to install X# into VS 2019 in the Setup program ?

Yes Robert, I did and it was checked.

I have tried to install X# as supervisor, with and without Xide, with or without VS 2017 but I did not get Xsharp documentation in the help-menu.

I did install the latest version VS ( community) before all this.

Ben,
Can you first look in VS2019 in the Extensions - Manage Extensions menu option to see if the 2 XSharp Extensions are available and ENABLED. You may have accidentally disabled these (VS Sometimes puts up a banner at the top, they call this the 'Gold Bar' and suggest to disable an extension).

Otherwise can you check the "c:Program Files (x86)XSharpUninst" folder and see if there are files:
- deployvs2019.cmd
- removevs2019.cmd
The first is used during installation to register X# with VS 2019. Could you run this from an administrator command prompt and see if there are any error messages.
There should be lines in there:
- That remove some directories
- that XCopy C:Program Files (x86)XSharpExtension*.* to the VS2019 folder
- that XCopy "C:Program Files (x86)XSharpMsBuild*.*" to another VS2019 folder
- that run the VS 2019 Devenv.exe with the /updateconfiguration commandline option

If that does not work then I'd like to have a look at you computer if that is possible.

Robert,

In the extentions X# was present and enabled. Executing deployvs2019.cmd on an administrator prompt did the trick. I have ported the application another time and everything sames to be ok.

Thanks for your help.

Ben
