VS 2008: "The designer cannot process the code at line...."

Hi X-perts,

I am migrating to Windows 7 64 bit and getting troubles with opening my old VB.NET project. It cannot open the Designer with the messages:

"the designer cannot process the code at line 5144: Me.FlashIndices.Enabled = true etc etc The code should not be manually modified. Please remove any changes and tgry opening the designer again"

What should I do? I have not modified the desigher code, obviously. The project was working on my old Win XP 32.

Any solutions how to fix this?

Thsnks

Ooops... no. I have just installed the main VS distro. I guess I installed SP1 on my old PC a long time ago... Let me try SP1

Did you changed the code inside InitializeComponent method before? Can you move the code outside of the InitializeComponent manually and try again?
