Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Compiler could not be created


Today i got the error(‘Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Compiler could not be created. QueryService for '{7D960B16-7AF8-11D0-8E5E-00A0C911005A} failed) when i try to open my existing project in Visual Studio.I repaired my Visual Studio 2008 using VS 2008 CD.But the same error :(.

Then i googled it . i got the solution .


  1. open command prompt
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE (if your visual studio is installed in the corresponding location)
  3. type devenv /ResetSkipPkgs

Note ResetSkipPkgs

Now my problem is solved :)
