Toolbox - All grayed out

Feb 20, 2013 at 12:54 PM
New to Visual Studio. A new install in Win 7 using the two packages, Integrated Shell + Isolated Shell. None of the items in the ToolBox are available to drop onto a Form. What do I need to do to enable the items in the ToolBox?

Sorry, we don't support the Windows Forms designer. You have the write the code to instantiate the controls and set their properties. There is a work item to track this feature request:

We do support the WPF XAML designer though. That one is easier to support because it's mostly round-tripping XML.
