Trouble loading Custom Palettes


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm an trying to use a custom palette on a chart in a WinForm, and am receiving the following error:

This .resources file shouldn't be used with this reader.  Your resource reader type: System.Resources.ResourceReader, mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

I followed the steps outlined here, and am using the downloadable palette file for testing purposes

I am not explicitly declaring which framework to use. However, I do have 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 installed on my machine. Is there even a way to force it to use an older framework? Is there a patch in the works for supporting the 2.0 framework, or will we have to install the 1.x on all the client machines?

Edit: Under Project - Properties - Common Properties - General I have the following... Supported Runtimes: v1.1.4322

...and I still recieve the error

> Is there even a way to force it to use an older framework?

Check your CfxResPkg using either Reflector or Ildasm . What version of the framework is it referencing? this is the version beign used.

> Is there a patch in the works for supporting the 2.0 framework

If you want to integrate with the .NET Framework 2.0 Chart FX 7.0 is your best option, however Chart FX 6.2 integrates to Net 2.0 as well as any .NET 1.x component.

> will we have to install the 1.x on all the client machines?

No. Chart FX 6.2 works fine with the Framework 2.0, however any resources it reads need to be built using 1.x

Sorry, not really familar with Ildasm. I have no idea where I should be looking to find what version of the framework the CfxResPkg is being used. I can tell you that the version # for the CfxResPkg utility is 6.0.895.29108

Here's the Manifest generated by the Ildasm app

CfxResPkg is linked to the framework 1.0. If you have it installed, it should run with it.

I suggest you create a Virtual Machine that doesn't have the .NET framework 2 and run CfxResPkg there. Once you have the resource you can run Chart FX with any version of the framework.

If you are unable to do this please contact Software FX support, they can help you up with that.

That's a pretty hefty workaround just to create a custom palette, and we do not have any VM software currently in the office. Is there any other way to go about creating this file while having the 2.0 framework installed on the machine? It seems like this would be a fairly common scenario.
