I purchase Prof-UIS yesterday and started the install.  Everything seemed fine through to the Installation Wizard.  I started that (compiling all the libraries) and it was obvious it would take a while so I left it running at the end of the day.  This morning I discovered that Visat had shut everything down to install updates so I don’t know what happened.

I went into VS2008 and tried to create a new project.  The Application Wizard was there but when I treid to use it, notthing happened.  I tried the MFC Appliaction wizard and that worked fine.

I went back to the Installation Wizard and tried to remove then install the paths and the wizard.  Removing the paths fails.

OK, I uninstalled Prof-UIS from the entire computer and tried again.  The Installation wizard gave me options to remove the paths and the app wizard.  I tried that.  path removal failed.  app wizard removal worked.  I tried to run the installation wizard again to re-install the paths and app wizard.  The paths option is still to remove (and it fails)  The app wizard option is disabled.

Please provide more information. Which version of Visual Studio you are using? We guess 6.0. Which VS service pack is installed? Which additional software extending Visual Studio functions is installed? Which versions of Windows you are using? Which locale is current in your Windows settings?

Finally, you can install some remote desktop access software like and let us connect to the computer where the wizard related problems occurs. This will let us clarify what’s wrong.

I’m using VS 2008 Version 9.0.21011.8 RTM.

I’m not sure how to determine the service packs.  The last line in the installed products list is KB946308.

I’ll be glad to install the desktop access software.  I’d like to get this project started.  I’ll go check out the site.

That doesn’t help at all.  Other than zip files there are only three files in Prof-UIS/Support:

·         IntegrationWizard.ini

·         ProfUISWizard.awx

·         Report.txt

And frankly I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be restoring.


I tried doing the manual installation of the wizard per the FAQ.  The files all appear to be unzipped properly.

Then I manually set the directories per the FAQ


I tried again, but I get nothing.  In the status bar it says “Creating project ‘Project1’… project creation failed”

The Prof-UIS installation is based on Install Shield and does not use any binary compiled DLLs for accessing/modifying anything. It cannot corrupt your Vista. The Prof-UIS Integration Wizard uses COM automation objects of different Visual Studio versions for running project compilation and linking, i.e. for building Prof-UIS libraries. It also uses direct access to the settings file of Visual Studio .NET / Visual Studio .NET 2003 / Visual Studio 2005 / Visual Studio 2008 for writing Prof-UIS paths there. If our Integration Wizard somehow corrupted this file, then you can manually restore it because the copies of the settings file is saved under the …/Prof-UIS/Support/… folder with HTML descriptions of how to restore the settings file.
