Puzzling error - System.Resources.MissingManifestResourceException

P: n/a
I have a windows solutions containing three forms. All works fine until I customize a form's Icon property. The icon displays fine in the IDE but if I try to run the application it throws "System.Resources.MissingManifestResourceException " before the main from is displayed. I've looked in the corresponding resx file and there is an entry for the icon. Why am I getting this problem and more importantly how do I fix it

thanks,

Are you using a menifest file with "devenv.exe" to enable Windows XP
Visual Styles in VS.NET? Then, remove this file.

I don't appear to have a manifest file at all just a standard assembly
files and three resx files. I do have a second project with a separate
assembly but that only contains some basic library type functions and no
forms.


"devenv.exe" is the VS.NET IDE...
