Getting designer issues after migrating the code from vb6 to


  • Hello Team,


    Recently I have migrated a windows forms project from vb to using VS2015. After migrating the code it's getting compiled and able to run the application and the project contains most of the custom Usercontrols so the thing is when when I am trying to open the designer of the user controls getting message like loading files.....after a while getting designer errors with call stacks.

    Getting designer errors :

    To prevent possible data loss before loading the designer, the following errors
    must be resolved:

    Can you please any one suggest me how to get rid of these designer issues?

    Thanks in Advance!!

  • The smartest way:

    Use document Outline  which is in Windows Other _> Windows _> Document outline (I've removed version 2015)

    Also go to solution explorer and in top you set the button show all files (be aware with some panes it is hidden so you must first set a code file in view)

    Then you can use the yourprogram.designer.vb file. 

    In that you see everything
