Visual Studio Setup & Deployment Project: “Unrecoverable Build Error”

After installing Visual Studio 2008, I was trying to build the setup project & I saw the error “Unrecoverable Build Error”, no information in other columns as file name, line number etc. I was wondering about the reason behind it & found following solution:
For setup & Deployment project, the error occures if mergemod.dll is not registered properly. To register the same run following command:
regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSI Tools\mergemod.dll”

Now, rebuild the project, it will work.

VS 2008 Error-“This project type not supported” for C# project types

I got the error when I tried to open Visual Studio 2008, saying “This project type is not supported by this installation.” It was specifically for C#.Net projects, all other types of projects were getting opened.
Following steps need to be followed to solve this problem.

1. Open Visual Studio 2008 command prompt.
2. Type: regsvr32.exe “path of IDE Folder\projectaggregator.dll”. In my case it is
regsvr32.exe “D:\VS\Common7\IDE\projectaggregator.dll”
3. Then type D:\VS\Common7\IDE\devenv /setup

It is all done. Now, close command prompt and start your Visual Studio 2008. All projects will get open.
