    Installation to use .vbproj

    Fraser Reekie



      I'm looking to record and edit macros to automate certain tasks in SolidWorks (Premium 2012 x64 edition).


      When I record a macro and save it as a .vproj file I receive the following error message:


      "SolidWorks Visual Studio Tools for Applications


      No Visual Studio template information found. See the application log in event viewer for more details.


      To open event viewer..."


      In event viewer the following message is displayed:


      "The Visual Studio template information is out of date. Regenerate the templates by running 'VSTA /installvstemplates' or reinstalling Visual Studio.  Note: corrective action requires Administrator privileges."


      I installed Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop and Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2012 but I still receive the same message.


      Basically, I've got no idea what to do now. I have looked in the forum & the SolidWorks help website and still have no idea.


      Is there something else I need to install or configure?


      I would really appreciate some help on this.
