    Please can anybody help with this error, our domain server has recently gone down and now we a running on a backup DNS, everything seems OK with the network now; but now I am receiving the following error messages and my projects are refusing to compile. I've spent a couple of hours on trying to solve this problem by Repairing/Re-installing VS2005, and i can't find any help from a google search.

    Error 1 Error creating Win32 resources: Error reading icon

    '\\wxmdc\dfs\Application Data\ben\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\VSProjectApplication.ico'

    -- The network path was not found.  

    Many thanks in advance for any help I recieve

  • We recently moved our home folders to a different server, and started getting this error.

    The problem is that the path to this resource is persisted in the .suo (Solution User Options) file as a full UNC path, instead of a relative path from the home folder. (Why this resource was landed in the home folder to start with, I have no idea.)

    To get rid of the message, close the solution and delete the .suo file. Visual Studio will recreate it the next time you save the solution or exit Visual Studio.

  • The method which Job Seigel mention didn't work for me. What I did it Right Click the project and Unload it. Once it is unloaded again right click the project file to edit. it will open up vbproj or csproj file which is actually xml. Search for ApplicationIcon tag and remove whatever is inside or search for the missing file name and delete it.

     

    That's it ... it worked for me.
