I’m trying to migrate several big applications from VWG to WiseJ, but first I’m trying to start small and get accustomed with it.
I’m using VS 2017 latest (ver. 15.6 2) and I installed WiseJ latest release (not latest build).
I created a new WiseJ app.
But when I open the form from the app, the toolbox is empty, no winforms control – see attachment.
Also, how can I find what WiseJ version I’m running?
I’m running VS2017 15.6.1 and it also happened to me.
VS solved it when I double clicked on the project Properties icon. After that, I created new projects without problems, even after closing VS.
You can try a number of things a bit more reasonable then double clicking here and there:
VS2017 changed the way it’s installed in the registry and it creates a new random id for each installation. We use an exe provided by Microsoft to locate the installations and use the first entry for the msi installer. Unfortunately it may fail at times. Check your registry in case you also have other VS2017 editions installed.
Apparently there is no way using any alternative method to install tools in the toolbox. VSIX and NuGet don’t support adding tools.
In any case, there are two options to fix this manually
Right on the toolbox, Add Tab, name it “Wisej Controls”, it’s basically this procedure https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/integration/installation-adding-to-vs-toolbox
Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_1e94a3d9 in the registry. Notice that 1e94a3d9 will be different for you.
Create a install.reg using notepad file with this content (you can repeat the second part as many times as you want to install the tools from the extension), then double click on it:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_1e94a3d9\ToolboxControlsInstaller\Wisej.Web] @="Wisej Controls" "CodeBase"="C:\\Program Files\\IceTeaGroup\\Wisej\\bin\\Wisej.Web.dll" "TargetFramework"=".NETFramework,Version=v4.5" "Index"=dword:00000000
After installing VS2017 15.6.2 I created a new project without issues. So this isn’t related to this specific version of VS2017.
To check the Wisej version, please have a look at the attached picture.
