I've decided to learn Visual Basic .Net as this is what some of my colleagues work with, and this will allow me to work with them on projects.
I have purchased Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Step by Step and downloaded the sample files. When I am trying to debug the first sample application (a Windows form), it is telling me that it can't load System.Drawing V18.104.22.168. However, if I create a new Windows Form application (C# or VB.Net) this works fine.
I had a look at the References tab in the project settings and System.Windows.Forms is referenced, but the version referenced is 22.214.171.124. I have removed and re-added this reference and it stays at 126.96.36.199 and I still get the error.
Does anybody have any ideas as to what may be going on?
I am using Visual Studio 2010 Professional.
This is because of a discrepancy in the target framework. v188.8.131.52 is targeting .NET framework v4.0 - v184.108.40.206 is targeting .NET framework v2.0. You can change the framework target for your project in
Project -> (myProject) Properties... -> Compile -> Advanced Compile Options -> Target Framework...
