Components to enumerate web references aren’t installed and I need to do what now?!

Monday, June 22, 2009 10:42 PM

I went to update a webservice reference in a web app and was greeted with a strange and somewhat disconcerting message…

The components required to enumerate web references are not installed on this computer. Please re-install Visual Studio.

Luckily, I didn’t have to reinstall Visual Studio as was suggested. Instead I just did what Joshua Morgan suggested on the MSDN forums:

I ran:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe /resetskippkgs" and it worked for me.

And that’s also what fixed my probs too. Hope this helps someone.

(Btw, in case its not clear, you run it from a command line)
