Desperate for Help..IDE Stack Overflow on attempt to Open Solution of my Main Project..

Arrrrrggghhhhhhh! I am dead in the water. My big project with 100's of files refuses to open

I am sure that it is something to do with open designers in the subclasses as it starts to load projects (there are 7) within the solution and bombs on the 6th one. How do you reset any open forms in designers from outside Visual studio?? If I can do this then hopefully I can get back into code and try and figure out what is causing this..

I was changing usercontrols sub-class to a differnt base class and moved the base class to another project within the same solution

The IDE crashed and now refuses to load the solution.., I have rebooted and continually get this Error

$exception {"Exception of type System.StackOverflowException was thrown."} System.StackOverflowException
everthing shows null or no value..

The error occurs in

System.Activator.CreateInstanc

What a PITA this is..

I am sure that somewhere there is a registry key that holds the currently open items in a solution but darned if I could find it

I researched the net and seems like the only way around this that I could find is to create a new soloution and add the existing projects to it. I did this , compiled it and the application ran just fine..

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm..

So I started opening forms in the designer till I found one that sure enough crashed visual studio when it tried to load. No way to recover.

Now Because the form never opened. I could reopen the project. I recompiled it and run this form, tested it and everthing works perfectly. So obviously there is something in the inherieted control that the designer doesn't like

I deleted the .resx file and the project loads... I still have to track down why the designer blows up visual studio even though the code runs fine...

I had this happen to me about 6 months ago but is was on a small test project and I just copied the code file. over.

What a waste of my time!!

Hi Mike,

Try deleting the *.suo file next time instead of creating a new
solution. The solution should open with a blank workspace when you load
it.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for that tip..I did that on the existing solution and once I did that I can open the original solution. I will file that tip away for sure as it would have saved me a few hours of searching for a way to open up the project...
