CF1.0 to CF2.0 problem after conversion


E

Ed Debrot

I am trying to convert an existing VS2003 .Net CF - C# app into VS2005 and
get the following error. I have verified that the file exists and is
referenced but I still get this error. I have a feeling this has to do with
the VS2005 beta2 screwing up my system (I'm now running the VS2005 release).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

Ed,

You may be right. Did you use vs_uninst.exe to get rid of beta 2 before
installing RTM? I had to run that utility 2 or 3 times to completely clean
my machine before installing VS 2005 RTM.

Thanks, no I did not run vs_uninst (at least not knowing about it).

I was able to successfully convert the project on a PC that never had
beta 2 installed. So, I guess that verifies my suspicion about beta 2. I
was still not able to build the project on my pc though. The last thing
I did seemed to fix things. I noticed that all my references were fro
the 2.0 project. I changed them all to the 1.0 dll's and the project
compiles ok. I'm considering re-creating the project files as a new
project under 2.0 so that I can use that as my target instead. A little
more work than I'd like to try, but it might be worthwhile.

Ed,

Good to hear you've got it working. If you ever do need that uninstall
utility, there's a link to it in the Readme for the RTM installation.
