  • If the resx file exist in the same folder as the form file but included in the project then under the project menu in Visual Studio select Show all files, if the resx file is shown the right click on it and select include in project. If the file does not show up then it simply does not exists and with that you would need to remedy this by trying to add back in resources or worst case create a new form, replicate form1.

    This is a good argument for creating backups for your projects.

  • Was waiting on your answer, Thank you not sure what happen to lose it.

    looks like in my case I will have to replicate Form1.

    when you say backup are you talking about using Project Build Backup Script?

    Thank you for your help

  • Hello,

    What I mean by using a backup is for instance using Team Foundation Server Community edition which has version control.

    Here is the important aspect of the tool.

    First-class integration with Visual Studio. Highlight changes to your code with rich file and folder diff tools. Track code changes across branches with powerful visualizations. Integrated code review tools help get feedback before code is checked in. You can restore prior versions of your project with a few clicks of your mouse.
