    Hi Vlad,

    For VS2010, the extensions and generators are listed in the same registry key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORM Solutions\Natural ORM Architect for Visual Studio 2010. You need to run Setup.bat with administrative permissions for these keys to be written.

    Unlike the VS2008 and VS2005 products, the VS2010 installation uses the new VSIX installation protocol, which makes it possible to have an install that appears to be running but not support generators or designer extensions.

    First, check to see if you have a Generators subkey at this location. If you do not, you should uninstall the product, then run setup.bat as an administrator.

    PS If this doesn't work, could you also specify your machine configuration (WinXP/Vista/7, 32 or 64 bit, VS2010 version)

    Hi Matt,

     Thank for helping me! I have checked my Registry key and I have this Registry Key on my machine which have /Designer and /Generators subkeys in it. I'm using Visual Studio Pro on Windows 7 (32 bit) laptop.

     Have a nice day!!!

    Answer

    Hi Vlad,

    Well, I totally blew this one I missed a conditional compilation line the tool for VS2010 and it is looking in the VS2008 registry location. I tested a clean VS2010 install from setup, but unfortunately had a VS2008 installation there as well, so I didn't see the problem.

    For a quick fix, try the following from a command prompt opened with administrator permissions (you can put these lines in a .bat file if you like):

    reg save "HKLM\Software\ORM Solutions\Natural ORM Architect for Visual Studio 2010" generators.hiv

    reg add "HKLM\Software\ORM Solutions\Natural ORM Architect for Visual Studio 20008"

    reg restore "HKLM\Software\ORM Solutions\Natural ORM Architect for Visual Studio 2008" generators.hiv

    del generators.hiv

    If you have VS2008 in a side-by-side install you should not do this (the reg add and reg restore lines will fail). For a 64-bit machine, you'll need to add \Wow6432Node to the registry keys immediately after Software.

    You should now be able to restart and see the generators. My apologies for the inconvenience. I'll try to get an official fix out for this and a handful of other VS2010 issues in a couple of weeks, but I'm pretty slammed right now. VS2010 was a major set of changes (585 files across 4 repositories), so please be patient while I work out the remaining glitches.

    Let me know if this enables your generators correctly.

    -Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for all your help!!! It is working now!!!

    Just for everybody who wants to use this fix please use

    reg add "HKLM\Software\ORM Solutions\Natural ORM Architect for Visual Studio 2008" instead of one in the topic above (just typing error) and all will work fine.

    Have a nice day!!!

    Vlad
