Set Up Error - Failed to load resources from resource file

P: n/a
Set Up Error - Failed to load resources from resource file
Please check your set up.

This plesently cordal and verbose error is greeting me in
a very random and unpredictable way in a current VB .NET
stand alone project I am doing (some times the program
runs for 10 minutes, other times, I get the error right
away).

Has anyone seen this error in a VB.Net program? Any
ideas on how to get around it? The program works fine on
all my 3 test systems, but in production, I get this
error randomly on all 30 machines I have tried.

I am out of ideas.

Greg,
I have gotten the same ridiculous error!
I'm running a VB.NET console/windows form app on Windows 2000.
The machine is a Dual Processor 1.4GHz P4's. I get the error after
approximately 1 day of runtime. Consistently! I have the same exact
thing running on a test machine (Windows 2000) with a single
processor. On THAT machine I do get a "StackOverFlowException occured
in system.data.dll" in the CONSOLE sometimes, but never the ridiculous
"Setup Error".

Not sure if they are related at all. I have no unbounded recursion or
excessive open method calls that I can see to cause a stack error on
the test machine and the app is only using like 13 MB memory when I
get either error on either machine.
So I'm currently trying to see why the test machine gets the stack
error becuase really I have nothing else to go on. Can't troubleshoot
the "Setup Error" at all otherwise. I've been looking for anything on
this error too and info is sparse to say the least. If you find
anything out make sure to post it! I'll do likewise...

I am wondering if the .Net framework got corupted knowing
what to link to what. I am reinstalling the framework
and getting different errors leading me to believe this
is progress.

I've put it on a different machine in our live environment, same
problem.
I'd be suspicious that its a framework corruption issue. I think its
just a damn bug. I bet we won't find any solution, probably have to
contact Microsoft directly and have them check it out...

I have the same error. It appears at random moments, and there is
absolutely No information I have found on it. I also have a solo -
project in VB.Net. What I have noticed since I am running the program on
2 different test-systems is that on 1 of the pc's it never gives this
error, and on the other one it does occasionally. I have tried
everything! I am runnig both of these tests on Windows 2000 Prof pc's.

If anyone has any idea's.... let me know!
Thanx in advance,
Roy
