Visual Studio 2008 System Runtime InteropServices COMException

I had to make a clean Vista install on my machine and all of a sudden I was getting System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException when opening old solutions. The error says very little to the user but what it really want’s to say is:

Install IIS 6 WMI Compatibility by going to Control Panel, Programs, Turn windows features on and off and select as the picture below showswindowsfeatures

  1. I had similar issue in Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2008.
    Web applications were able to configure in ISS 7.5 but when i tried for the WebService it gave the com error. As you mentioned when i enabled items mentioned by you it worked.
    Thanks 🙂

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You saved me hours of work.

    Running Visual Studio Team System 2008 on Windows 7 64-bit. Got the exact same error message when loading a project. Adding IIS 6 WMI and Metabase corrected the issue immediately.

  3. Thanks sooo much. My company will start migrating their computers from XP to Windows 7 (finally) over the next 18 months. I’m in their pilot program and was issued a new computer. I had other configuration issues (run vs2008 in admin mode, register ASP.NET, regedit & source control changes), but I spent all day yesterday trying to fix this error. Thanks again for sharing!!! Much appreciated.
