After installing Visual Studio 2005 beta 2 on a machine that previously had a copy of VS 2005 Beta 1, I got an error when trying to open the windows forms designer –

visual studio settings and project designers package has failed to load properly

Could not load type Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.IVsRuningDocumentTable2
from Assembly Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.8.0

To fix this, I spotted that in the GAC (C:windowsAssembly) there were two versions of Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.8.0, I uninstalled the older version, restart visual studio and it worked. Apparently the same problem occurs with the ASP.NET web page designer with Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.SVsSmartOpenScope.

There are a number of similar DLL’s in the GAC with identical names and version numbers – such as Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop.8.0 (which causes a bug with Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop.IVsQueryUndoUnit) and Debugger.interop.8.0

On a personal note, I just noticed that one of my websites, www.buymusic.cd just reached a Google PR 5.
