for some reason i can not get the viperpin sample in the DeveloperKit10.0 sample to work in ArcMap 10
i opened the solution file in ms vb basic 2010 express and did a build on ViperPin2010 and registered the .dll from C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\DeveloperKit10.0\Samples\ArcObjectsNet\ViperPin\VBNet\bin\Release
when i go to arcmap and try to add a tool from file using the .dll it errors out with the message "can't load library from specified file"
i read on an earlier post that the .tlb file must be used for adding the tool and there were instructions for creating the .tlb file using vs 2008 express

however the solution file will not open in vs 2008 returning a message that the solution file was made with a newer version of express, does anyone know how to create the .tlb file with ms vb 2010 express?
