I am trying to start with C# and have tried following the istructions on the video as well as the "Create your first application" link.

However, when I choose File - New Project then select Windows Application (and change the name of the application) all I get is

"The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007B)"

I have re-installed the software to no avail!

HELP!

I've tried not changing it and changing it to the names given in the instructions e.g. HelloWorld and abc but all produce the same result.

hi,

try to name your classes without spaces or special charachters and see first , if it didn't work them it

may be an error in installation , you can ask in express installation and registeration forum, you can find it by clicking visual studio express link at the top of this page

best regards
