Workstation services does not start in Visual Studio 2005?
  

I get the following error while i try to run a program i created in VB on visual studio 2005.

"Error while trying to run project. Unable to start debugging.The workstation service has not been started"

I am running 64 bit windows which I don't think should be the problem,and also let me know where to start those services.

Any ideas?

Re: Workstation services does not start in Visual Studio 2005?

This behavior can occur if both network adapters attempt to register the same NetBIOS name with the Microsoft Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS).

To resolve this issue, disable the NetBEUI protocol that is bound to one of the network adapters. To do this:
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double- click Network.
  2. Click the Bindings tab, and then click All Adapters in the Show Bindings For box.
  3. Click the plus sign next to the second network adapter.
  4. Click NetBEUI Protocol, and then click Disable.
  5. Click Close, and then restart the computer.

Hi,

I think these error messages can occur if the Server and Computer Browser services have been set to Automatic Startup on a stand-alone computer that is not connected to a network or does not have a network adapter installed.

The prevent these errors message, change the Server and Computer Browser services to Manual Startup:

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click the Services icon.
3. In the list of installed services, click Computer Browser.
4. Click Startup.
5. Change the Startup Type to Manual, and then click OK.
6. In the list of installed services, click Server, and then click Startup.
7. Change the Startup Type to Manual, and then click OK.
8. Click Close.
9. Restart your computer.

Hi! I'm new here. I am using Visual Studio 2008. Try this work around. We usually use the Run to test if the application will work. However, because of that error, we can't run the project. The work around is to run the exe file created when you build the project. It is located in the bin folder. This will run the application but no debugging support.

Here's a possible root of the problem. When you installed the 64-bit OS, you there was an error in copying localspl.dll.

Solution:

1. You need to put a copy of this dll in your system32 folder. localspl.dll.

2. Go to your network properties. Then install Client for Microsoft Networks (this is actually the workstation).

3. You can now run and debug.
