Hi E's, I install the program 'Retro Football Manager' with success in my Windows Mobile.
The problem is when I execute the program after installation, the system give me this error like you can see in attach image: "Message Text unavailable. Resource File Microsoft.VisualBasic resources not found".
My phone is a HTC, I Have .NET framework 3.5 installed. You can check OS in attach image.
How I fix this problem?

what's cf.net version installed on the device? you've mentioned ".net 3.5" - was it supposed to be "installed on desktop" or on the phone?

From above images, you have WM 6.x where cf.net 2.0 should be pre-installed. you might want to install a cab from SDK with additional resources to see the error messages.

no, I don't want error details for now.

please try the following first:

- navigate to the folder where you have .net SDK installed, eg on my PC is it c:\programn files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\SDK etc etc - you should have the folder for 3.5 somewhere there

- go to Diagnostics folder and select the cab file for suitable language (with _wm suffix as you want it for windows mobile)

- install that cab on the phone and try to launch the app again

Hi, I check the folder like you can see in attach image, but I don't see the file in PT (Portuguese). My Desktop is OS XP in Portuguese, and my mobile the windows was Portuguese too.
What I have to do now?

Start->Settings->System->Regional Settings - select eg English (US) there, click OK, then reboot the phone

ok, now click on Details, and let's see what's in there. but I think it's irrelevant as it looks like the bug in the application. but anyway, check what's it, and maybe there is some fix available, or perhaps some dll is missing etc.

I show you the details (2 images of the same screen).
Now just talking about the game. Can the problem be from the game?
What I can do?
