    88'''Q:''' My VS cannot open the !CrypWin.exe because the type of project (.exe) is not supported. What am I doing wrong?
     
    1414'''Q:''' It does not compile due to a missing file. What can I do?
    1515
    16 '''A:''' Please check if the missing file is where it is supposed to be. If it's not there file a ticket, or tell us in our group chat. This should not happen. However, if it '''IS''' there, then check if the total path length to this file (including it's name) exceeds 256 characters -- this can happen when you checkout in a very deep directory. If it exceeds this length you have to move the whole source-code directory into a less deep directory, e.g. directly to C:\CT2-Repository\

Vergewissern Sie sich, dass der Parameter in der Aufgabe vorhanden ist und dass es sich um eine festlegbare Public-Instanz-Eigenschaft handelt.")

    24 '''Q:''' Everything compiles smoothly, but when it starts there comes an System.!TypeLoadException with a message about the !SplashScreen. Why doesn't it start?

    26 '''A:''' You did not install .NET 3.5 SP1. Since some versions, .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 is a necessary pre-requisite to start !CrypTool 2.0, hence install .NET 3.5 SP1, which you get directly from the Microsoft Webpage.
     26'''A:''' You did not install .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1, which has been a necessary pre-requisite to start !CrypTool 2.0 for several versions now. Thus, you should install .NET 3.5 SP1, which is available directly from the Microsoft website.

    29 '''Q:''' Is it possible to open a specific workspace aka .cte when I start CT2 so I don't have to open it manually all the time?

    3131'''A:''' Sure, just open the CrypWin.exe properties and add the path to your .cte in the Command Arguments section. Don't forget to put your path in quotation marks if it contains spaces.
