Doesn't Work

I've tried several times ( re-downloaded and reinstalled after uninstall ).

It does not work for me. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 on a HP Phenom II X4 840T 2.90 GHz 6.00 GB RAM. At the end of the installation process it reports, "Application cannot be started. Contact the application vendor". Details:

Hello

I have make some major releases from August.  Would you please try downloading the Sample Browser again, and let me know if it works for you now?

We have also recently released the Sample Browser Extension for Visual Studio 2012 and 2010

http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/4934b087-e6cc-44dd-b992-a71f00a2a6df

It allows you to search and download samples from within the Visual Studio IDE.

Thanks

Hello mdavidjohnson

You can download the latest standalone version of Sample Browser from http://aka.ms/samplebrowser, and download the latest version of Sample Browser VS extension from http://aka.ms/samplebrowservsx

Thanks

Thank you, but no – the SampleBrowser.application still refuses to start.

I suspect something was not completely removed by the previous uninstall of the defective copy.

Is there something specific I might look for in trying to correct that ( preferably without danger of messing up my system ) ?
