The project was created in VS 2005, so VS 2010 should be able to read it and convert it (as VS 2013 Express did for me). As part of the conversion process it should also produce a log telling you of any issues encountered. I have just tried again and it works fine, so I do not have any more suggestions. You should check the directory containing the solution file to see if it has attempted the conversion process.
Apologies if I'm asking silly questions, but if you open the demo exe the project looks like the sort of thing I need - question is, is there a way I can open that demo (or the project file) in the equivalent of what used to be a design view?
Excuse your question as a neophyte.
After completing my application with Visual Studio 2010 (Vb.net language)
With db access, I posted the app with the ClickOnce system without checking the part of the update and I tried installing it to a friend for testing and it went all right.
The question is this: If I make changes to the application that do not affect the database structure, how do I update the app to the "client" without touching the data on its local access db?
If I have to make changes to DB Access, I have to first transfer my data to the new modified db access.
I got a new laptop (long story ) and installed VS2017 Community edition (previously using 2015 community). Loaded my current project from my backups (lost some work, oh well ) and started working on it. Had to upgrade the project to use VS2017 settings, so far all is well.
Now I want to make some changes to a dialog resource in the project. I go the resource view, select the resource file and attempt to open it. It fails to open with the following error message
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x86\rcdll.dll;
Can not find the resource compiler DLL
Please make sure the path is correct.
What the ?!
So I do a search for the rcdll.dll file and find it located at:
OK, I figure that maybe the executable file path in the project settings is not set correctly. So I select "Project->Properties->VC++ Directories->Executable Directories" and sure enough it is pointing to the proper directory, the one with "10.0.15063.0" in it.
Does Visual Studio use a different setting for the resource editor other than the executable file setting? If so, what is it?
I could copy the rcdll.dll file to the other directory where VS thinks it is, but that just seems wrong as it may break any future updates and what about the other files in the same folder. Am I going to end up copying them all over. Just seems wrong.
I don't know if your going to find what you're looking for in the project file but it's worth a look.
Right-click the PROJECT item in Solution Explorer, pick "Unload Project". Right-click the project again and pick "Edit". You can then search for the old path (listed first in your post) to see if it's mentioned in there. If so, you just found where to change the tool path. If not, close the editor window and right-click the project again and pick "Reload Project" to get the project back to normal.
1.- VS 2017 does not uses gray color for unused variables. Comes very well for debugging functions. I have looked at the internet and says that you have to adjust it in Tools, Options, Environment, Fonts and Colors, Display items, Dead Code item.
It seems that this option does not exist in VS 2017 or in my VS 2017 translated into Spanish I do not find that option. The supposed output of "Display items" in spanish would be "Text Editor" but not exists nowhere "Dead Code item".
Does anyone know what happened?
2.- Some way that when you open the solution, automatically open all .cs and leave everything as it was when closing?
1. Visual Studio already odes this by default. It'll put a white squiggly line under the variable and if you hove the mouse over it, it'll say "The variable 'x' is declared but never used." It'll also be in a gray box, at least it is in C# under the Dark Theme.
2. VS already does this by default. It'll open all the files that were open when the solution was saved and closed in the last session.
