After a reboot yesterday, I got the following error message from Visual Studio.
“Cannot find one or more components. Please reinstall the application.”
I did the control panel fix/repair this app, nothing. Today i’ve found the solution on a messageboard so I thought I’d post it to save others hours of frustrated re-installation.
Is it empty? Mine was. Copy atl90.dll from an adjacent x86 folder into that folder.
Start Visual Studio.
This worked for me on Windows 2003 Server, with Visual Studio 2008.
