Sorry to hear you are having problems getting things to work.
Could it be that you do not have the .NET 2.0 Framework installed on your system? Could happen if you are on Windows 8 and never installed any previous version of Visual Studio.
Go to Control Panel -> Programs, and then choose the Turn Windows features on or off link.
Make sure that the .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) check box is selected.
You don’t need to select the check boxes for any child nodes for optional components of the .NET Framework.
The post about how to set up a C# project is still pending on our todo-list.
