I have been having a lot of trouble moving all my Compact Framework projects to 3.5 over the past few days.

The first problem came in the form of the "Update Web Reference" failing with the following error:

The custom tool 'MSDiscoCodeGenerator' failed. Could not retrieve the current project.

From what I can gather, there are leftover's from VS2008 beta... no matter, the only solutions out there involved reinstalling, which means lots of time wasted. The best info I found was here.

All I can say is that I rediscovered how many hours it takes to install the tools and SDK's that I use every day (i.e. it would be nice if the installation process was much faster).

The final error I had for the day was when compiling my setup project:
An error occurred while validating. HRESULT = '80004005'
My recommendation here is to delete any references you have to other projects within your solution and recreate them. Posted on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 2:33 PM | Back to top
