Help - I'm new to VS


  • I'm a VB6 programmer and this is my first time using VS.

    My VB6 code was converted and now I get these 2 errors and 1 warning.

    I' be happy to pay someone to do a FIX for me. I know nothing about VS

    Warning 1 Task attempted to find "AxImp.exe" in two locations. 1) Under the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin\" processor specific directory which is generated based on SdkToolsPath 2) The x86 specific directory under "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin\" which is specified by the SDKToolsPath property. You may be able to solve the problem by doing one of the following:  1) Set the "SDKToolsPath" property to the location of the Microsoft Windows SDK. SerialNumberTracker

    Error 2 Could not run the "GenerateResource" task because MSBuild could not create or connect to a task host with runtime "CLR2" and architecture "x86".  Please ensure that (1) the requested runtime and/or architecture are available on the machine, and (2) that the required executable "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A\bin\NETFX 4.0 Tools\MSBuildTaskHost.exe" exists and can be run. SerialNumberTracker

    Error 3 The "GenerateResource" task's outputs could not be retrieved from the "FilesWritten" parameter. Object does not match target type. SerialNumberTracker

  • Hi hamptondude,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    >> My VB6 code was converted and now I get these 2 errors and 1 warning.

    Would you like to share more information about your application and the way you convert your VB6 application? Does your vb6 application contain some COM references or other SDK reference?

    The error code also provides the suggestion for you. How about these suggestions going? Do they help to solve your issue?

    I look forward your reply.

  • Irwin,

    Hard to say without seeing any piece of code. 

    I can give you some analogies but I spare you those. 

    However, maybe the blog from my friend Lucian can help you in this.
