Biggest user error ever most likely.

It gave me an error regarding not being able to load a package and a GUID number,(and a command to reset package i of course paid no attention to at all before i clicked it off) so i of course told it to not load it.

Get into trying to test the new pretty things out and..No Visual XML Desginer, yes i have the Text/Code XML window but no graphical element to it and for the life of me cannot find how to show it.

So i ask ye mystical wizards of Addon Studio how doth i fix mine user error?

edit - Okay the command in question was devenv /resetskippkgs but i am not quite sure how to do that from the shell enviroment (i only have VS 2005 installed and i know its not cross compatible)
eidt2-and i just did it by the long way through the cmd line(navigteing to the folder) and still nada...hmm*gets her poking stick*

Edit3- Exact error(will also post to issue track):  AddOn Studio for World of Warcraft
 Package Load Failure
 Package 'Microsoft.WowAddonStudio.FrameXml.FrameXmlEditorPackage, FrameXmlEditor, Version=1.0.30107.1, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3f65cf85c2f22261' has failed to load properly ( GUID = {C20A7700-F178-4AE1-B58A-AA5EC4DABBF6} ). Please contact package vendor for assistance. Application restart is recommended, due to possible environment corruption. Would you like to disable loading this package in the future? You may use 'appenv /resetskippkgs' to re-enable package loading.
 Yes   No

I am having the same issue. :(


I got it fixed.   What you need to do is uninstall the older version and the new version you just installed.  I had to use AusLogics Uninstaller to do it properly.  Then just reinstall the new version like normal and it worked flawlessly.

Don't mean to bump but has anyone fixed it yet in some manner (i have tried uninstalling about alot...then reinstallihng..and registry trawling).

And any ETA on maybe a bug fix patch? Know you guys are bound to be busy over there but just curious.
