Hi Guys,

I really need help for this issue.

I have .net windows application written in vb with a module (MyModule) that as the declaration of a variable with the following declaration:

Public GblDocuWareInicioAberto As Boolean

When i try to set the value of this variable on the form class i get the exception:
"The type initializer for 'myProject.myModule' threw an exception."

I dont know what is happening here. This application has been updated to framework 3.5 and since then it has this error.

Kind Regards.

// The Module
Option Explicit On 
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Globalization
Imports System.Threading
Module myModule
Public GblDocuWareInicioAberto As Boolean
End Module
// The call from the form class
Private Sub frmMain_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
GblDocuWareInicioAberto = True
End Sub

Open in new window

Watch Question

I really dont know what was happening. I just deleted the module and created a new one. After that i renamed the variable name. Now it's working.
