View Full Version : .net and trial licence

9th October 2003, 21:41
Being both broke and unemployed
the nearest I have to .net is an out of date trial version
that will not run the IDE.

Who needs a debugger anyway is my balls of steel self-belief.

So here is my problem:
I want to compile and link both asp and winform based jobbies
but I have to do this from the 'dos' prompt

For example:
/r:"\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\Primary Interop Assemblies\Microsoft.mshtml.dll"
/out:WebBrowser.dll WebBrowser.cs
csc /reference:WebBrowser.dll /r:"\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\Primary Interop Assemblies\Microsoft.mshtml.dll" WebBrowserTest.cs

Produces the following unhealthy output

Unhandled Exception: System.Resources.MissingManifestResourceException: Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture (or the neutral culture) in the given assembly. Make sure "WebBrowser.resources" was correctly embedded or linked into assembly "WebBrowser".
baseName: WebBrowser locationInfo: CoadTools.WebBrowser resource file name: WebBrowser.resources assembly: WebBrowser, Version=, Culture=neu
tral, PublicKeyToken=null
at System.Resources.ResourceManager.InternalGetResour ceSet(CultureInfo culture, Boolean createIfNotExists, Boolean tryParents)

Anybody know how I create mak files or whatever
to get a good build.

Now if you know how to Crack/nobble/steal/break
the Microsoft "this product has expired ..."
that would be just as useful but probably illegal ....

Dim are you around .... ?

I am around (as ever).

You can download and run the trial version of VS 2003 for 60 days:

msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/productinfo/trial/default.aspx (http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/productinfo/trial/default.aspx)

Even if you have tried a previous version, this should work.

If you are looking to do ASP.NET you can use the free IDE known as Web Matrix:

www.asp.net (http://www.asp.net)

Alternatively, get your doctor to sign you off as depressed and claim invalidity benefits which will soon cover the cost of a VS.NET license.

free IDE well okay worth seeing what it does.

doctor to sign you off as depressed ...

My wife is doing the whole clean out thing
( I started savings for a house aged thirteen .... )

My female trick-cyclist Doctor Roberts said I am not
"depressed" I am "angry"
I said no, I am very bitter at my wife cleaning out
thirty years of my efforts compared to our fourteen year

Can "doctor" be my male G.P.
