Resource designer Parameter not valid error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I'm working with VS2017 EE, and after adding a couple of images to a resource file, when I try to edit it again, I get the following message 

    Parameter not valid (See image). 

    Any clues? 

    TIA

  • Hi Daniel Seara,

    According to your screenshot, I create a VB WinForm and add image resource for this project. After I reopen the Resource tab, I get the same error message. I also checked the C# WinForm, it has the same problem.

    I have submit this issue to Visual Studio 2017 Developer Community, please vote and add your comments from below link. Please wait for the response from Visual Studio Team patiently. Thanks for your feedback for Visual Studio 2017.
