Expression Blend Help... Debug Errors

i am using expression blend 4 on windows 7 with .net framework 4.0, when i debug, build, or rebuild, i get an error, to long to remember and it wont let me copy and paste the text. it happens with all programs, wpf, silverlight, c # and VB. i can get it t work in expression web only if i use visual studio 2010 professional as a middle layer. anyone got any ideas?

Get the full .net 4.0 package here;

Download details: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)

Install it, run Windows update, and see if the errors go away.

Thanks, but it did not work. the error summed up says

" The specified solution configuration "debug|HPD" is invalid. Please specify a valid solution configuration using the configuration and platform properties (e.g. msbuild.exe solution.sln /p:configuration=debug / p: platform="any cpu" or leave those properties blank to use the default solution."

OK. Some applications wont work properly with the "standard" .net 4.0 Client. I have had this quite a lot, and I thought it was likely the case here. Obviously it wasn't.

Sorry I was unable to help. Try the user forum mentioned.

A quick (about 30 seconds) search on the Expression forum may have the solution. BTW, do you have an HP system?

Portions of possible solution threads:

> I believe the problem is that HP puts an environment variable/reg key on their machine that conflicts with one the Visual Studio/msbuild use. PLATFORM is used in msbuild files to specify which platform to build for (x86, AnyCPU...) and it is saying that HPD is not a valid platform value.

> It is as simple as opening the registry editor (Win + R and then enter Regedit) and there find the path to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment and once there, delete the PLATFORM variable. After this, close the registry editor and restart the machine.

I solved the problem as follows.
Using regedit.exe I navigated to th registry path
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
and selected the key Platform. Platform had the value HPD.
Then I deleted only the value HPD. After this the key Platform was still there but empty. I closed Regedit, restarted my PC and run Blend 4.
The build for my HelloWorldSilverlight4 now succeded.
Although I would like to know if there are any known issues concerning this workaround. What I found about MSB4126 on the internet was that this error occurs if the registry key "Platform" at the above mentioned registry path has any value. The value I guess comes from HP (Hewlett Packard). Maybe it stands for Hewlett Packard Device? The machine I use is a HP Pavilion. What I found on the internet mentioned was that also other PC manufacturer are writing a value to a registry key named Platform. And in those cases the error MSB4126 occured. I don't know whether on all machines with a value at registry key Platform but it seems to be a known issue.

I feel your pain - I have a Compaq laptop...first thing I did was uninstall all the crap, shut down the HP services. Eventually I got a new copy of Windows 7 and installed it on that laptop. Did the same with my Dell laptop and HP Pavilion desktop (my other desktop computers are build from scratch).

Start a new thread regarding your hardware problem. Meanwhile, see if the ideas from the Expression forum work.

do you know if installing a new copy of windows will fix what HP has done in the regestry, because they have caused other problems, like i cant un install the norten trial that i didnt even want on it, when i try, windows says it is a security threat, and i agree, HP stough should be a security theat, but i need to run the un installer wheich is HP/Norton intigrated and just Shift+Del on the files can screw with your system, i cannot un install from the bios or safe mode.
P.S. it worked, ty and also ty to the person who wrote the origonal article
