My Visual Studio 2008 is broken

March 4, 2010 10:17am CST
I can't make any new program from scratch because its new application wizard is broken. Specifically, it stops at selecting project settings right before a new project is born. As you can see in the attached picture, clicking the Finish button doesn't work because there are no program settings. My copy of Visual Studio is express, I also have the pro version but it also has the same bug as the express one because it is dependent on it. I don't know what I'm supposed to do since the help files aren't doing anything.

try uninstalling the VS2008 and reinstall only one version either express or professional vesion. dont install both the versions. i think it might have caused the problem.

The Professional version is completely dependent on the express version, it will not install without an existing express installation. I'll try reinstalling just the express version and see how it goes, but I've been too busy to go around the problem for months now. Anything else I need to know when im reinstalling the express version?

Professional edition is not at all dependent on express edition. I'm using Professional Edition from almost a year
