Build 203 will not run on VS2003

Hi All

I just wanted to let you know that I just installed build 203 (in VS2003) and it doesn't really want to work. The instal seemed to be ok. Also starting VS was no problem. However when I tried to load my project the whole thing went crazy. I got a bunch of unhandled exception dialogs (I tried to send it but that failed aswell, probably due to an incorrect password). Even checking the "Don't show this exception again" checkbox didn't really help. In the end I just killed VS because I didn't really want to keep clicking the ignore button.

The project I tried to load is fairly large (about 15 projects in a solution) but the last stable version of R# works without problems. I'll try again with the next version.

Now I'm off to reinstall the last stable version.

Regards Patrick

Hello Patrick,

could you please tell us if this project was loading OK with the build 202?
What do you mean by the last stable version of R#? Please also post some
exceptions
you got here.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dmitry

I don't know if the project would load ok in build 202 because I never tried 202. Build 203 is the first build of R# 2.0 that I tried.

The latest stable version I have is build 165. And as for the exceptions I don't have any. I had to kill VS because the unhandled exception box kept popping up every second (after dismissing it). Also I tried to send the exceptions but that failed (in hindsight probably because of an incorrect password).

I really don't want to reinstall build 203 because it took me a good hour to get build 165 back into shape (with all the customizations etc.). However if you can tell me how to save the customizations I can try again to see what I get.

Oh and minor point. I've got build 165 installed and that has the funny blue highlighting for the matching braces now. Really strange.

I just tried build 204 on VS2003. Looks like the problem is still there. Again install seems to go ok (no error messages or something). Then starting VS is fine. The project doesn't automatically load (which normally happens because it loads the project I worked on last). When I try to load the project R# goes nuts. The first 7 stack traces should be in the tracker (nrs 2 - 7 under 8887 (???).

I also installed R# build 204 under VS2005 beta2 and that worked fine. VS and resharper start without a glitch. I will try to run VS2005 on the same project as 2003 is running on.

The solution has about 15 - 16 projects in it with about 850 files. All files are pure C# (so no managed things in there).

I hope the stack traces help. I'm taking R# out of VS2003 for now. Will try again in the next build.

Hello Patrick,

I've found the stack traces you posted. Could you please tell us what projects
does your solution include (i.e. Console, WinForm, ASP.NET) and what are
locations
of the respective project files?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Dmitry

The solution includes 3 console apps and for the rest all normal library projects. There are no WinForm or ASP.NET projects.

The directories for the solution are roughly like this:

MainDirectory
CompleteSolution
SubProject1
SubProject2
SubSolution
SubProject3
AnotherSubSolution
SubProject4
SubProject5

The solution I'm working on contains all 5 subprojects and it is stored in the base of the CompleteSolution directory.

The thing that is different is that my source files are not stored in the project directories. All my source files are in a special source directory and in my projects the source files are linked. That might be part of the problem you're seeing.

Also when I tried to recreate the solution in VS2005 (starting from scratch with a new solution and then adding new projects for every assembly) I got into trouble again. The stack trace is in the tracker under number 8889 (I think). Here also I am linking the source files and not directly adding them to the project.

Hope this helps

Regards Patrick

Hi Dmitry

Same problem still here. Installed build 205 on VS2005. Item is in the tracker under number 9159. Don't know what VS2003 will do because I haven't tried (can't mess up VS2003 right now because I need it to work).

Tried loading the same project as last time. Again normal project (no winforms, no asp.net etc., only normal C# classes). My guess is that it is connected to the fact that my source files are linked to the project (and thus not stored in the same directory). I tested another add in a while ago and that crashed because the file names were really long (as in longer than the 256 chars that are apparently legal). Other than that no clue.

Hi Dmitry

I just had another exception (number 9161 in the tracker). This one indicates a file path problem, so I'm guessing the problem is indeed in the file name being to long.

Let me know if you need more help with this one.

Hello Patrick,

could you please tell us what is the path to your linked files? You can mangle
it but
preserve its length and root letter. It's odd that the exception message
does not contain
the problematic path. We'll try to do something with this issue, though,
frankly speaking,
I'm not sure what is the right thing to do with long path.

Hi Dmitry

The file name is attached to the tracker message (9159). I also check the length of my file names and the biggest one is about 230 chars so it should be fine (as far as I know windows allows 256 chars for a file name so).

Hope it helps
