Has anyone else run in to the problem that Visual Studio will not load the DocProject Addin if FIPS is enabled? If I disable FIPS then the addin will work fine.

The error I am getting is:

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ----> System.InvalidOperationException: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated crytpographic algorithms.

There is more but that's the main error,

Any thoguhts or resolutions?

Hi Joe,

I'll need to see more information about the error, including a stack trace if one's available.

I responded to your post in the MSDN forums. It may be better if we continue the conversation there since it has a wider reach than this forum :)
