If you encounter a problem with NPanday, try some of the following to resolve the issue before contacting the user
* Check what version of NPanday you are currently using
The version can be viewed from the output console once you start NPanday
Another way to check for the version would be to go to <<Visual Studio Help \> About>> menu option
* Verifying Visual Studio 2005/2008 Service Pack 1 is installed
To make sure you have the Service Pack 1, go to <<Visual Studio Help \> About>> menu option. From the About screen,
verify that the Service Pack version is enclosed in parenthesis after the Visual Studio Version.
Another way to verify the Service Pack installation is to click <<Copy Info>> from the <<About>> screen and paste
the information in a text editor. Verify that the SP installation information is in the list.
For Visual Studio 2005
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional
Edition - ENU Service Pack 1 (KB926601)
For Visual Studio 2008
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008
Version 9.0.30729.1 SP
Microsoft .NET Framework
Version 3.5 SP1
* Verifying .NET SDK installation
The SDK usually installs automatically when you install Visual Studio, but you might have to download it
separately and put it into the right place.
When NPanday runs the first time, it will try to detect all installed .NET Frameworks and their
corresponding SDKs. The findings are stored into <<<%HOME%\.m2\npanday-settings.xml>>>.
After installing a required SDK, delete the file in order to let NPanday generate a fresh one.
Then check if the paths to the targeted .NET Framework and SDK are listed correctly. If not, feel free to
file a bug in the projects {{{../../issue-tracking.html} issue tracker}}.
As a workaround, you can execute NPanday in the corresponding command prompt (e.g. Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt).
* Clearing the Visual Studio Add-in Cache
If you want to clear Visual Studio's cache of any previous versions of the tool before you start Visual Studio, run
the following command:
devenv /ResetAddin NPanday.VisualStudio.Addin
* Warnings when opening solutions generated by NPanday
Upon opening your Project/Solution, you may see a window with the selection <Load project normally>. This occurs
when you generate a Visual Studio solution from a Maven project (as opposed to importing the existing Solution in
Visual Studio).
Select that option and continue. This window may appear for each project, so select <Load project normally> each time,
or change the checkbox that indicates not to warn again.
