    "The designer can not be shown because the document for it was never loaded"

    One one of my PC's, when I start a new project, and try to click on Form1 to display it in designer, I get this error: "The designer can not be shown because the document for it was never loaded"

    When I log in as a different user, the problem does not occur.

    Any ideas?

    It sounds like something IDE is corrupted. I'd suggest a repair.

    The IDE works fine when a different user name is logged in.
    Also, that user name gets the error if you try to save to USB or to C:
    So, I think it's not the storage device, or the OS/VB.net

    So, now I am thinking it has something to do with the user profile.
    Like maybe a write permission? Maybe it can't write the XML file associated with the Form in question?

    I think the local user profile was corrupted on that particular PC.
    User account was able to work on different PC on the network.
    And an alternate user account worked on that PC.
