Hi All.

I'm a newbie. I have just installed Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Express online but I notice the Visual C# icon is actually blank.
I had already run the setup again and repaired it but to no avail.  I think the problem lies with the Security Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 XML Editor (KB2251489). I also have problem with installing the VS XML Editor, it won't install. So, how can i fix the blank icon problem?

Appreciate your help. Thanks.

In general VSX is not compatible with most of the other VS addons.  This includes third party components (which is what I assume you are referring to as XML Editor).  Because of licensing restrictions you have to have a full version of VS to work with third-parties.   This is not to be confused with KB2251489 which is a hotfix for VS2010.

Where do you see the blank icon?  It could just be a caching problem in Windows.  If you are not experiencing any other issues then just resetting the icon may be sufficient (depending upon which one you mean).
