I'm not sure if this is in the right thread but I tried to relate it to the correct one! There was so many to choose from it was too hard lol.

Anyway I have an uber-annoying problem. I am developing for Windows Azure for the first time. I have installed the SDK's etc for Visual Studio 2010 and it all seems to work the only thing is if I try to do anything at all in the server explorer I get about 2 to 5 error popup windows before I can do anything. The error says "Save view failed with the following error: Type'Microsoft.VSDesigner, Version=, Culture=nuetral,.....' is not marked as serializable. Make sure view name is a valid file name.

If I close all the popups then it will work for a minute until I leave the server explorer and come back and it will do it again.

So annoying!

Any ideas what I've broken? I tried searching for ages and cant find anything. :(
