Project Manager doesn't show projects
I am running XP SP3 and have upgraded my Windows Installer to 4.5. I ran the SF4 install with standard options. Then I run the Sitefinity Project Manager and use it to create a new project. It successfully creates the project and I am able to view the site and use the Administration area.
Since I am attempting to upgrade a 3.7 site, I have to make changes that require restarting the Project Manager. This is where the problem comes in. When I reopen the Project Manager it asks me to accept the terms of service and then the tool has no projects in it and all I can do is create a new project. I can see the files from the project I created in the filesystem, but I can't view the site anymore.
Any help or guidance you can give on what I'm doing wrong would be great!
Please add the project manager in a folder of your C: drive. This issue happens when the project manager is added to the desktop or some virtual drive. Also check the xml file that is generated and populated when you create a new project. This file contains the path to your projects.
All the best,

Thanks for the fast response Ivan.
I should've mentioned I'm running XP as a VM on my Mac. I wonder if this makes this impossible altogether? All of the Telerik software is located in the C drive of the machine, however, I suppose it might still be considered virtual since it's a virtual machine.
I'm not able to find an XML file for these projects, where might I find that? If I can change the location from there, maybe that'd be a sufficient work around.
I may have figured it out. I turned off folder sharing and mirroring in my virtual machine's settings, created a new SF project via the Project Manager tool. This placed a "projects.xml" file on my vm's desktop. I moved the file to "c:/program files/telerik/sitefinity 4.0/" and now when I open the Project Manager, it doesn't ask me to agree to the TOS and it shows the project I created.
I will post back if I have any further issues.
Im experiencing a similar problem.
No xml file is generated.
When I restart project manager, its empty.
Im running win xp sp3, its a physical.
Ive tried both the standalone project manager and the installer.
Ive tried running the program from c drive root and various other locations, none worked.
Try generating a project xml file where you set the location of the project
<project id="2c261a49-05d3-4e0a-a18a-d0c019a33f49" Name="testsql" BrowseUrl="Click Browse to resolve" SfVersion="4.1.1339.0" DateCreated="04/26/2011 09:59:05">
<Location Type="FileSystem" Url="C:\IDIMITROV\Temp\4.1\Projects\testsql" LocalPath="C:\IDIMITROV\Temp\4.1\Projects\testsql" />
Do you have problems if you try to run the PM from higher version of Windows?
