How to fixThe Application Data folder for Visual Studio could not be created.

I have heard of a few instances recently where customers have installed Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista, windows 7 and then every time they tried to launch Visual Studio, they received an error dialog with the following text:
The Application Data folder for Visual Studio could not be created.
This error dialog only has an OK button and clicking OK closes Visual Studio and the IDE cannot be used.
A post has a description of an application compatibility warning that appears when launching Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista.  This warning dialog appears when attempting to launch Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista.
Unfortunately, the same dialog also appears during Visual Studio 2005 setup.  If you press cancel on this dialog when it appears during setup, it can cause some of the necessary registration steps to be skipped.
If you see this Application Data folder error dialog when launching Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista, there is a chance that you inadvertantly pressed cancel on this application compatibility dialog when it appeared during Visual Studio 2005 setup.  You can use the following steps to repair the Visual Studio registration on your system and resolve this error:
  1. Click on the Start menu, choose All Programs, then Accessories
  2. Right-click on the item named Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator
  3. Click continue to launch an elevated command prompt
  4. Run "%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /setup
Note: the command line in step 4 assumes that you have installed Visual Studio 2005 to the default path on an x86 system.  You will need to update the command line if your system is not an x86 system or if you installed Visual Studio 2005 to a non-default path.

For 2008 

"%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\VWDExpress.exe" /setup
By the way, if you installed Visual studios 2008 under a folder other than Program Files, you need to specify the path as follows:
"C:\your install folder\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\VWDExpress.exe" /setup
I am running Win7 x64 and this corrected the problem.

  • One more thing, follow your path to the common7\IDE directory and see if the aforementioned exe file exists, if not, substitute the exe of the program giving the error message.
    By doing this, you should be able to correct any version with the issue.
