Form will not load in VS 2017 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When trying to load a form in VS 2017 using Visual Basic, I receive this message:

    "Duplicate declaration of member 'Instructor'

    Instructor is the name of the form I have trying the load in VS.

    How do I resolve this?

  • Hi Jeff07,

    So you mean that the form designer has the loaded issue, am I right?

    Could you visit it in other VS machine? If you create a new Winform app, does it load normally?

    Do you get any other compiled or build error if you clean and rebuild your solution in your solution explorer window?

    Click the designer file and re-open it again in solution explorer window, how about the result?

    Actually this forum is to discuss the VS debugger tools, we have to make sure that whether it is related to the Project itself or VS IDE or others firstly.

    Best Regards,
