Consfiguration Section Designer - how to fix broken XSD?

Aug 13, 2014 at 3:13 PM
I have used Consfiguration Section Designer to design custom config section some time ago.
Recently I found that XSD file generated by the designer is broken, instead of XSD schema it contains just error message (XSD content is gone):
An exception occured while running the CsdFileGenerator on this file. See the Error List for details. E=System.InvalidOperationException: TextTemplating service unavailable
   at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextTemplating.VSHost.BaseTemplatedCodeGenerator.GenerateCode(String inputFileName, String inputFileContent)
   at ConfigurationSectionDesigner.CsdFileGenerator.GenerateAllContent(String fileExtension)
   at ConfigurationSectionDesigner.CsdFileGenerator.GenerateContent(String element)
   at ConfigurationSectionDesigner.VsMultipleFileGenerator`1.Generate(String wszInputFilePath, String bstrInputFileContents, String wszDefaultNamespace, IntPtr[] rgbOutputFileContents, UInt32& pcbOutput, IVsGeneratorProgress pGenerateProgress)

Is there any way to regenerate the XSD ?

Unfortunately, you will need to have the tool regenerate the XSD file. The tool will use the CSD data file to generate this content. If the CSD tool has stopped working on your machine, it will need to be repaired. Is that your issue?
