Are you trying to open up a WP7 project/solution in Visual Studio and it just dies on you? I think I might be able to help you out!
Are you working on WP7? Have you ever seen VS 2010 just STOP working on you, after you open up a WP7 project/solution you got from a friend or some someone? I have, and for the life of me I couldn't figure it out! Well, that was until Dean gave me a clue! Thanks Dean!
Turns out, VS isn't so good at reporting the LACK of the WP7 VB.Net component! Instead of telling me I don't have VB.NET for WP7 installed, it just GPFs on me! DOH!
Well, Dean came to the rescue and told me try this link out. After installation, POOF! I could see the app! Beautiful!
