Project could not be opened because Microsoft Visual C# 2008 compiler could not be created

Did you face this problem in Visual Studio ever? When you open or create a new project then a error message come "Project could not be opened because Microsoft Visual C# 2008 compiler could not be created" followed by another error message like "QueryService for '{74946829-37A0-11D2-A273-00C04F8EF4FF}' failed."

If this error is buzzing you then there is an easy solution for this. First Close all Visual Studio instances that are presently running. Open Windows registry editor (run -> regedit) and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Packages. There you will find a Key called SkipLoading. Check the value, it must be 0x00000001. Change it to 0x00000000 and you are done.
Just restart the Visual Studio and enjoy...
Happy Coding...
