I got following exception twice in last 30 days.

“The components required to enumerate web references are not installed on this computer. Please re-install Visual studio

This exception occurs when I change existing web reference Url and point to a new asmx. Why is it asking to re-install visual studio? I would like to avoid re-installing vs 2005 if possible.





did anyone get anywhere with this error ?

All was well with my VS2005 until I published a web site – since then I can’t add or update any web references without seeing this error !

—stop press —

solution in post PostID=107222 worked like a charm !

close VS2005, start | run

devenv /resetskippkgs

No more web refrerence errors after this point.
