The "Error retrieving information from user datastore. Platform not found." problem...

This message occurs when you are trying to open project not supported by the current configuration of Visual Studio 2005.

If this is Web project you need to install Visual Studio 2005 SP1 which is adding full support for Web Projects.

If this project is for a Smart Device (for Windows Mobile 5 or 6) you will need to install Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Smartphone, Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Pocket PC or Windows Mobile 6 SDK. Don't forget to install Active Sync and upgrade Device Emulator to version 2.0.
