I installed Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 on a machine that already had Visual Studio 6.  Every time I open a VB6 project, VS2010 attempts to perform some configuration operation.  It can be stopped immediately by clicking the Cancel button, but if left to complete it takes 10-15 minutes.  Even if you let it finish, it will do the same thing again next time you open a VB6 project.

It is odd. I did that fix. Did not work. I looked in the directory, folder was not there. So I made a new folder, and started up Visual Basic 6.0 again. Guess what. It somehow deleted the folder! It was not there anymore!

But the problem still exists,though I create the very folder。Is there some connection with my Chinese version?

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Office 2010 RC installed. VS 2010 RC.
Using macros in Excel VBA and the same thing happens all the time.
FromGAC in either x86 or 64 bit Program Files does not fix it.
Any other ideas??????

@JJohnson165: Yes, creating that directory made the problem go away.

Look in your Application event log for an MsiInstaller warnings. One of them should say something like: The resource 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\FromGAC\' does not exist. If you create the FromGAC folder, the problem should go away...

It happens also with Excel 2007! It is very annoying!
