VS 2010 express

I was able to compile with VS 2010 (leaving out some stuff). GrammarExplorer starts, but grammar dll loading fails.

Is VS 2010 "non express" a requirement?

it should work, although I didn't test it lately - I have full VS. Make sure everything is rebuilt correctly - your grammar dll and all dependencies. What is the error and when it shows?

I encountered this also.  The project and solution files "know" they were created in VS Shell instead of C# Express, and so cannot be opened in the C# Express editor.

I worked around it by recreating the project and solution files manually, though most likely the same effect could be obtained by editting a tag in the files.

First create the project files, and the folder hierarchy; then right-click each folder to add its files. This avoids the files being added to the project root instead of the folder.

Everything works fine once that is done.

I got it to work with SharpDevelop.

Remove test projects and Language project.

Setting the target cpu to 32bit, I can even debug....

The new VS 2012 Express for Desktop includes many features that were missing in VC# 2010, like Solution Folders and VsTest projects. Upgrading to VS 2012 Express helped me tremendously.

Irony.Silverlight is not supported in Express, so that project will not open.
