I was able to get into VS in Safemode and reset the toolbox that way.Imagine having to deal with this sort of issue without the resources of shared knowledge.Error 1 Build failed due to validation errors in C:\projects2008\Time Trakker\Time Trakker Business\model\Time Open the file and resolve the issues in the Error List, then try rebuilding the project.So much time is wasted on crap like this that shouldn’t be happening in the first place, and which reduces the productivity that a powerful IDE like VS provides.
Unfortunately for many of the things that I do it's not appropriate because of public domain redistribution issues so I'm stuck with using either what comes in the box or using an OSS.
BTW, you need to see Styx in concert tonight in Maui, I saw them yesterday on Oahu, they kicked butt!
Aloha, Kevin One easy answer is to dump the pathetic MS offering and use something better with a decent interface like llblgen pro.
C:\projects2008\Time Trakker\Time Trakker Business\model\Time Well, I opened the file and looked at the error list – according to the error list it’s a parsing error at a / with no line number and not even a filename. I remember odd parser behavior when upgrading between the beta version and the final release.
I think the change at the time was an encoding change from UTF-16 to UTF-8 or something along those lines that caused the document not to be readable. I checked encoding saved the file and validated the XML – no problem there.
I then opened another project with another Linq to SQL model and it too fails with the same error. At this point I turned to Google to search and sure enough this has been found on a few occasions (like this post from Michael James).
