For some time I have had problems updating WCF service references on one of my PCs. I got the following error-message from Visual Studio: "The components required to enumerate Web references are not installed on this computer. Please re-install Visual Studio." As I am an obedient developer, I dutifully uninstalled and reinstalled Visual Studio yesterday. That took some hours, but then I had time for cleaning up some of the paperstacks in my office and if it would fix my problem, I would be a very happy developer. Unfortunately it did not fix my problem. Updating WCF service references still resulted in the samme error-message ;^(

Hm - one could try searching the net... OK let me do that - I might after all be able to find something that could lead me in the right direction. It would propable end up taking me a long time fixing my Visual Studio installation, but what else could I do? (short of reinstalling the PC that is - and I did not want to do that right now).

Well... as it it turned out, it took me less than a minute to find a solution and fix Visual Studio using:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /resetskippkgs

I am of course happy that I can update WCF references again, but man do I feel stupid - and more so than usual...
