resources file not working in VS2008

P: n/a

I have converted a project from VS2005 to VS2008, and I now have
problems accessing icons which are stored in a .resources file.

The target framework is still 2.0.

When I look at the .resources file in the Soultion Explorer, the icon
has changed into the 'unknown file type' icon.

When I run the application, I get a runtime error saying something

Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture or
the neutral culture. Make sure "[namespace].managericons.resources"
was correctly embedded or linked into assembly "[namespace]" at
compile time, or that all the satellite assemblies required are
loadable and fully signed.

Has there been any changes to how resources files are handled?

Best regards,

Oh, never mind, I was able to solve it myself...

It seems to be a bug in VS. More info can be found at

I solved it by generating a resx file from the resources i had, and
added that to the project instead.
