My Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Developers crashes when i try to open any resx file in a large solution containing approximately 15 projects(the projects themselves is not, though, very large).
If i try to open a .resx file in the Editor, the following message pops up instead of the list of resources in the file:
"The type initializer for 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Editors.ResourceEditor.ResourceEditorView' threw an exception."
Then Visual Studio is immediately crashing, the dialog says "Microsoft Visual Studio has encountered a problem and needs to close."
If i click the "What information is contained in this report?" link i get this error signature:
EventType : clr20r3 P1 : devenv.exe P2 : 8.0.50727.762 P3 : 45716759
P4 : system P5 : 22.214.171.124 P6 : 461ef191 P7 : 5a2 P8 : 0
P9 : system.typeinitialization
The same error occurs when i add a resource file to a project, using Add->New Item...->Resources File.
To generate the strongly typed resource classes, i need the designer to work properly.
I am getting around it partly by not using the editor, but rather XML directly, and partly by delegating resource check-ins to my colleagues...
But its quite frustrating.
