Previously, the initial error message was "An error occurred trying to load the page.
Class not registred.Looking for object with CLSID: {B07DA5DD-055B-4018-88F3-3A433FDB9B25}."

But, I tryed close my VS and open again... Now I saw one second message: "An error occurred trying to load the page.
Unable to create the designer. File is already opened in an incompatible editor."

Thank you!

With windows 8.1 apply this fix doesn't let me run my silverlight app. Says my silverlight developer runtime isn't installed. And if I do try to install it, it says it's already installed.

Does anyone know if this Sinofsky was fixed in VS 2013? This is such a pain to keep doing this. I have to do this work around every 2 weeks or so.

This condition is most certainly NOT fixed.

I think it was fixed in the update before. But I just got another update the Sinofsky-ed it again.

We will be fixing this for the subsequent release.
Kindly use the workarounds mentioned as stop gap

Had to update my Telerik Just code extension and it wiped out the workaround again. Please fix this year.

This error can be caused by a missing registry key:

For details on how to manually create this registry key, see workarounds.

Same problem for me too on 4 different computers. Hope this issue will be solved soon.

Bam! Erased again. I think it happened when I installed the Visual Studio Achievements plug in.
Posted by danparker276 on 1/8/2013 at 11:33 AM
I think every time you do an update to Visual Studio it erases this key. What a Sinofsky

It was working for a month when I did the work around, but now I see it again. Why isn't this fixed with the update. This is a MAJOR bug
Posted by RobertoD on 10/29/2012 at 4:57 AM
The BenCHK soluction's worked.
Thank you!

Rather, VS 2012 Pro's installer (re my previous workaround comment).
Posted by BenCHK on 10/24/2012 at 11:40 AM
Based on Process Monitor output, Visual Studio is looking for in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0_Config\CLSID\ for a key named {B07DA5DD-055B-4018-88F3-3A433FDB9B25}. For whatever reason, VS 2011 Pro's installer doesn't always create this key.

This key can be created manually as follows (adapted from how VS 2010 Pro set up the equivalent key):

=== Patch.reg ===
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Assembly"="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Silverlight, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

You can use signtool.exe to sign your project. In post build event command line add something lke this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\bin\x86\signtool.exe" sign /v /f f:\Certificates\YOURCERTIFICATE.pfx /p YOURPASSWORD /t TIMESTAMPING_URL $(TargetName).xap
