Failed to load resources from resource file. Please check your Set


I am developing a .NET application in managed C++. Until now we have
executed without problems in a lot of different computers. But a few days ago
we detect a problem in some laptops. In all cases the system was XP SP2 and
..NET Framework 1.1.

The problem appears initializing the application. A message box with the
text 'Failed to load resources from resource file. Please check your Setup'
appears and the application does not run. We know that the first code in the
application is executed but not the main form load.

Anyone know what can be hapenning?

Did you load any external resource in your application using
LoadResource()? Because the resource files are put into exe or dll when
compiling. Also, did you copy the dll your exe might referencing? Are all
the XP SP2 machines down with this problem, or is there any successful ones?

Hi, Kevin:

We don’t load any external resource. Every resource file used in the
application are embedded in vcproj file, so they are included in .exe file.

And the application is running well in every machine with OS XP SP2 at the
moment. In fact, this problem exists in only two machines ( laptops ) at the
moment, and they have correctly installed .NET FrameWork, updated XP with
SP2 and so on as rest of machines. I have no explication for this error in
only these two machines, but for me is a main problem now.

Do you know any solution about ?

Advanced thanks.
Best Regards.

I did more research on this, there might be some known issues associated
with it. So I suggest you try to contace Microsoft PSS to do an intensive
troubleshooting. If this is really a product issue, they will help you work
out a hot fix free of charge. Here is the contact information
