Thread: Move back from RC1 to Beta2

    Move back from RC1 to Beta2


    I have a situtation where I am trying to deliver a application to a user who
    has Beta2 installed and would prefer not to update (?).

    I create a new project in a Beta 2 version of Visual Studio and added only
    the forms and classes (*.vb). All seems to go fine; no errors. However,
    the form will not display in design mode inside Visual Studio. VS indicates
    the form has an error which should be corrected, but no errors are shown.

    The inherits clause is the same.

    Any ideas. I know this is not the best thing to be doing, and I will force
    the user to upgrade if no simple answer.

    As long as you still have a machine with all Beta 2, this is doable.

    I'm confused. You said you "create a new project in a Beta 2 version of
    Visual Studio" and then "the form will not display in design mode inside
    Visual Studio". Are you using the same version of VS.NET in both of
    those sentences?

    Yes. I created a project on VS Beta 2 on a separate machine and then I copied
    the .vb files from the project on VS RC1 into it by ADD EXISTING.
    When I cliked on the form in the solution explorer, the display panel indicated
    VS (Beta 2) was not able to display the form because it had an error, but
    I could find not error.

    Well, there were changes in the ResX files from beta 2 to RC1, so perhaps
    you are seeing the ancillary effects of this.

    Robert: Try deleting any .resx files associated with the form(s), and then
    try opening the forms in Beta 2.

    Well given that the RTM is now available, they can't surely object to upgrading
    to that given this is now shipable!
