Asked On January 18, 2006 12:40 AM UTC

Hello, I can''t get any of the controls to appear in the VS toolbox. This machine used to have 3.3 on it. I uninstalled 3.3, installed 4.1.0.10 first, but still no toolbox items. Running the Toolbox utility did nothing; in fact it didn''t seem to really run. Then today I uninstalled 4.1.0.10, and tried again with 4.1.0.25. Same result. No items in the toolbox and running the utility did nothing. So I ran Utilities/ToolBoxInstaller/runall.exe from the command line and got no errors...but nothing changed either. So I ran Utilities/ToolBoxInstaller/2.0/toolboxinstaller.exe 4.1.0.25 and got the following error: Started at 1/17/2006 4:32:40 PM Initialising....... Initialisation completed at 1/17/2006 4:32:44 PM Adding tab to the toolbox of Visual Studio 2005 Error occurred while adding tab Syncfusion to Visual Studio 2005 - 1/17/2006 4:32:45 PM. Logging exception details... Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component. So...what should I do? Keith

Keith, does it work if you manually drag a dll (e.g. Syncfusion.Grid.Windows.dll from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies) to the Visual Studio toolbar? Please double check also that you do not have the problem discussed here on your machine: http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/studio/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=23 Thanks, Stefan

The fix did solve my Windows Update problem (thanks for that!) but had no affect on the behavior of the ToolBoxInstaller. I ran it from the command line again in the way I mentioned in my first post and got the same COM Fail error. Then I tried manually adding the .dlls by dragging them into the toolbox and that seemed to work fine. I added quite a few controls, then added them to a form in the designer. changed some properties, etc. and then ran it. Everything seemed to work. Any ideas why the toolboxinstaller fails? If you have some other diagnostics you''d like me to run let me know. It would be great if this worked properly in the upcoming release. Keith
