Make sure you have Visual Studio 9.0 installed.

Does the product work properly or you cannnot run it at all?
PostgreSqlDirect .NET is being tested with Windows Vista currently.

As for now, try to insert this block of code to file “devenv.exe.config” in
(you might change the installation path/drive, this is an example for my machine only)
“D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\” and
“D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9\Common7\IDE\”

Code: Select all


Check that “href” attribute in corresponds to a valid path.
