Dear all,

I have been working in a desktop application development in Visual Studio 2010 and it is almost at the end of it.
My problem is that when I am trying to change the properties of previous controls it seems blank I cannot find anything in properties window, but all the previous changes done on them are implemented now also.

If I try to change the controls listed in properties windows it says Visual Studio encountered a problem and need to restart and restart.

I had reinstalled Visual Studio now my project deadline is approaching and I do not know what to do.
Please help if anyone had any idea.

I have had similiar things before, and deleted some files to sort things out.

It talks about it here;[^]

maybe worth a shot (remember to backup your projects first (just in case!)

In addition to the solution by Dave: if what is described in the link he provided is the reason of your problem (which is very likely), you have some other problem: you need to get a habit to build your project from scratch on regular basic, as a sanity check, and you also need to know precisely which files are your source files and which are temporary; unfortunately, Visual Studio mixes some of them up together.

Speaking of the backup… hm, there is more to it: don't even play with the idea of doing your development without Revision Control system. If could be Open Source, free of charge, non-intrusive and extremely light weight even for an individual developer.

See this discussion: Revision control systems, which to choose from?[^].
