Invalid Resx file. Invalid length for a Base-64 char array or string. Line 6292, position 5.

    Question

  • My Pc crashed. When I moved my project to my new laptop I received an error Invalid Resx file. Invalid length for a Base-64 char array or string. Line 6292, position 5. The following is part of the RESX file. I need help solving this error.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <root>
      <!-- 
        Microsoft ResX Schema 
        
        Version 2.0
        
        The primary goals of this format is to allow a simple XML format 
        that is mostly human readable. The generation and parsing of the 
        various data types are done through the TypeConverter classes 
        associated with the data types.
        
        Example:
        
        ... ado.net/XML headers & schema ...
        <resheader name="resmimetype">text/microsoft-resx</resheader>
        <resheader name="version">2.0</resheader>
        <resheader name="reader">System.Resources.ResXResourceReader, System.Windows.Forms, ...</resheader>
        <resheader name="writer">System.Resources.ResXResourceWriter, System.Windows.Forms, ...</resheader>
        <data name="Name1"><value>this is my long string</value><comment>this is a comment</comment></data>
        <data name="Color1" type="System.Drawing.Color, System.Drawing">Blue</data>
        <data name="Bitmap1" mimetype="application/x-microsoft.net.object.binary.base64">
            <value>[base64 mime encoded serialized .NET Framework object]</value>
        </data>
        <data name="Icon1" type="System.Drawing.Icon, System.Drawing" mimetype="application/x-microsoft.net.object.bytearray.base64">
            <value>[base64 mime encoded string representing a byte array form of the .NET Framework object]</value>
            <comment>This is a comment</comment>
        </data>
                    
        There are any number of "resheader" rows that contain simple 
        name/value pairs.
        
        Each data row contains a name, and value. The row also contains a 
        type or mimetype. Type corresponds to a .NET class that support 
        text/value conversion through the TypeConverter architecture. 
        Classes that don't support this are serialized and stored with the 
        mimetype set.
        
        The mimetype is used for serialized objects, and tells the 
        ResXResourceReader how to depersist the object. This is currently not 
        extensible. For a given mimetype the value must be set accordingly:
        
        Note - application/x-microsoft.net.object.binary.base64 is the format 
        that the ResXResourceWriter will generate, however the reader can 
        read any of the formats listed below.
        
        mimetype: application/x-microsoft.net.object.binary.base64
        value   : The object must be serialized with 
                : System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary.BinaryFormatter
                : and then encoded with base64 encoding.
        
        mimetype: application/x-microsoft.net.object.soap.base64
        value   : The object must be serialized with 
                : System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.SoapFormatter
                : and then encoded with base64 encoding.
    
        mimetype: application/x-microsoft.net.object.bytearray.base64
        value   : The object must be serialized into a byte array 
                : using a System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter
                : and then encoded with base64 encoding.

  • My guess is one of your buttons or something is referencing a system icon that does not exist or is incompatible.

     <data name="$this.Icon" type="System.Drawing.Icon, System.Drawing" mimetype="application/x-microsoft.net.object.bytearray.base64">
        <value>

    Was the other system 32 bit and this system 64?

    Is this a program you wrote? What is it? A one button form or a rocket launcher or what?

    One possible last chance attempt is to make a backup and start removing things until it stops.

    Sometimes searching for the exact error message will turn up specific info.
