Oh the joy of a new RhoMobile version!

Creating new virtual machines and finally deciding that is time to leave the old trusty Windows XP and jump on the new Windows 7 with 63+1 bits. Oh man! what a pleasant use of time :-)

On top of this I wanted to spin the setup a bit and decided to use a localized version of Visual Studio 2008… what can go wrong with it?

Well… you may encounter a fancy Microsoft «feature» with a message that more or less reads: «VCProjectEngine.dll» Could not be loaded

This obviously, in your language of choice.

The Solution?

From the same thread, copy the content of the localized package for vcbuild in the main folder; in my case:

  • From: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcpackages\1040
  • To: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcpackages

I just made a copy of the original content before moving the files (you never know).

Enjoy your localized Visual Studio!
