# Mono Develop unable to load plugins or editor

When I load up MonoDevelop, it gives me an error, saying how it could not load the C# editor and plugins for my project. I have had this problem for as long as I can remember, and I can still use MonoDevelop to create scripts.

However, MonoDevelop no longer acts like an IDE, more like Notepad+. The lack of plugins causes MonoDevelop to lose even the most basic form of line suggestion. How do I fix this error, and restore the IDE capabilities of MonoDevelop?

• What OS are you using? Have you recently (or not recently) moved any of the concerning folders or files? – Gnemlock Dec 11 '16 at 21:55
• I also wanted to address the edits I made to your post; Youl notice I have provided the error as text. Text errors are much more useful, as users can actually copy them to look up. I also removed your other image, as frankly, there was no point to it. We believe you. You do not need to show us screen to confirm that this is happening. – Gnemlock Dec 11 '16 at 21:56

• The problem may be caused by an inconsistency in the .proj file, but feedback suggests that manually fixing this error will not resume IDE functionality. If you want to try, the suggestion is to remove "<ProjectTypeGuids></ProjectTypeGuids>".
