VB freezes while compiling

Posted on 2009-07-02

I have a project that I have compiled many times in the past without incident that is now freezing when I try to recompile it.  None of the code has changed.  I can start the program from VB without any problems.  I tried 'Start with Full Compile' and that also runs fine.  I also tried starting a new project and readding all the forms, modules, etc to that and saving it... same problem.  It goes as far as creating all the .obj files, then nothing.
I can compile other projects without any problems, so I am assuming the problem is within one of the objects, but how do I find out where?  Help please!

By removing one object at a time and trying to compile the project, I have narrowed the problem down to one of the forms, but I still don't know what the issue is.  It is certainly the largest form in the project... maxed out on components, but it has always compiled without any problems.

Can you give more details for the form? Maybe provide the hidden .Designer.VB file associated with that form. It could be useful in determining elements that might cause hangs (for instance, an element that is tied to a network resource that is no longer available.)

Not sure what the issue was, but after giving up for the day and trying to build the project again the next day... it worked.  Thanks for the input.

You might want to check for a
'If (Today() = "Tuesday") Then Throw Error()' :p

Glad it worked out for you.
