The project type is not supported by this installation.

I was loading my solution in VS.NET 2008 and finding some of the projects were failing to load with the message “The project type is not supported by this installation.”

I found the solution was to open the Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt and run devenv.exe /resetskippkgs

  1. I think that solution is the fix-all for all sort of problems. If my VS starts playing up I smack it with a bit of devenv.exe /resetskippkgs.
