Remove licx file

Hi all,

I've got an application that was using Infragistics and ComponentOne controls.
I've removed all those controls and references etc.
But I'm trying to delete the "licenses.licx" file and when I do, the project won't compile.
I've actually deleted everything out of the license file, so it's just a zero byte file...but I don't even want it physically in the project at all....and it seems to be adding a step into the build trying to compile the licx file.

How do I remove the "licenses.licx" file from the project, build, solution?
this is an app migrated from 1.1 to 2.0

Thanks!
Sam

What compiler errors are you getting when you remove the license file?

Hi Bob,
This is my "duh of the week"....all I needed to do was exclude the file from the project and then delete it!
But the err was something to the effect of "could not convert licenses.licx to binary resource".

I do appreciate the effort!

thx
Sam

Also, just to vent/rant a little...hehe...the previous developer on this project had talked the company into buying the full Infragistics package (ie $$$$$$$) ....just to use one bar graph control...and the one bar graph control on one page...required about a dozen Infragistics dll's....3 of which absolutely required the SDK to be installed just to compile!  
Boooooo Infragistics!!!!!!

also,
Is it alright if I just give you the pts instead of having the question deleted?  I'd like my opinion on Infragistics to live on (!)

Yeah, you can keep my opinion on Infragistics, too.  I used their TreeView control from VB6, and they started trying to force licensing through a web site for activation (like Micro$oft).  It didn't work, and they were forced to remove it, and go back to the old way, but not before totally pissing me off!!!!

I am not a big fan of the way that Infragistics (previously Sheridan) does business.  I liked 'em better when they were Sheridan.

Finally ripped out the last remaining bits of all the Infragistics controls!
Interestingly, you can't even be in design view and delete the control there....it leaves a bunch of html tags (specific to the Infragistic control) on the page!

If anyone should stumble across this question and is using Infragistics for their charting controls...I'd recommend using FusionCharts at www.infosoftglobal.com
They are Flash (animated in some cases), and completely driven by XML.
Not nearly as expensive as the "true" .Net charting components out there....and I've used them successfully in classic asp, net1x and net2.0

Thanks Bob!
