Recipe Framework Error

description

Hi,

I installed the v3 package as directed, after installing all of the prerequisites and get the following error whenever I try to create a new solution, be it a single or multiple project solution.
I've looked at the other similar posts but cant seem to get anywhere, any thoughts.

Microsoft.Practices.RecipeFramework.ActionExecutionException: An exception occurred during the binding of reference or execution of recipe CreateSolution. Error was: Action AddSchemasProject failed to execute:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object..
You can remove the reference to this recipe through the Guidance Package Manager. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

This issue is related to VS install, and cannot be solved by the BSF

Hi, it is difficult to determine the cause of this issue.
Are you sure all prerequisites are installed?
Looking at the error, it might have something to do with the Visual Studio setup because the error shows up at the 'SetProjectProperty' method.
What version and type of Visual Studio are you using?

Jean Paul,

I followed the installation procedure on another machine and everything worked fine.
On the first machine I still have the same issue. Do you know how I can clean up VS so that its in a clean preinstall state.

Good to hear it just works on another machine.

You could try uninstalling VS, and make sure all GAT/GAX packages are removed as well.
Then reinstall VS.
