Can't Access DSL Integration Service

I am doing the 15-minute walkthrough. I've installed DSLToolsRedist.msi, ProjectAggregator2.msi, and Web Service Software Factory.

On step 2 of "Complete the Service Contract Model" I get the error "Can't Access DSL Integration Service" when I click the ellipsis in the properties window.

What am I missing?

It sounds like the service package may not have been registered. Can you see if this service package is registered by looking for the HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0Exp\Packages\{4ca249ec-ba85-4537-b541-d3e4561044dd} registry key?

I do not have that key. How do I register it?

This should have been set during install. Can you try uninstalling and reinstalling the factory?

Also, I was wondering what environment you are install into to see if we can repro.

I had this problem on both XP and Vista (Busuness) machines. On XP I've uninstalled Web Service Factory and installed it back and that took care of the problem. I will try the same tonight on my Visa machine.

I uninstalled and reinstalled "Web Service Software Factory.msi". That seems to have worked, but I still don't get that regkey (does that matter?)

I left the "Web Service Software Factory - December 2006 (refresh).msi" as-is.

Otherwise, it looks like it works perfectly now. The 15-Minute Walkthrough script was 100%.

I took the key location from a dev version of the factory, the key should really be located


Sorry for the confusion.

Just wanted to add that I got the same error - but after uninstalling and re-installing the service factory it worked!

I am running on Vista.

Same as above. Had problems telling me that a resource was missing. Uninstall and install fixed the problem.

I originally installed source, then uninstalled, then installed binary only and got same error.
After uninstalling and re-installing the service factory binary again it worked.
