New app not executing after upgrade to XP Pro

I had Windows XP Home Edition and upgraded to XP Professional. When I open Visual Studio.NET and create a Windows application I am not able to execute it. I get the error: "Unable to run the project: debug failed ... run setup to install or repair the debugger."

What can I do to fix this?

Uninstall the .NET Framework and Visual Studio and reload them. Required registry entries are not set up correctly.
