VB Express 2010 PowerPack problem
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have a program I started in VB Express 2010. Everything was working fine, I have the UI complete and much of the coding is done. For reasons (not related to my program) beyond this post, I had to reinstall the OS (Win 7 x64) and reinstall VB Express 2010. This was done as a new clean install (new drive). My original program used a few features of the PowerPack (line and circle). When I first attempted to load my program, I got an error that the ShapeContainer and LineShape were not defined. I realized that I hadn't installed the PowerPack. I quit my program (didn't save it) and proceeded to install the PowerPack tools. However when I reload my program, it doesn't recognize that the PowerPack tools exist. If VB sees errors in the Form.vb(Design) code, it won't display the design. I commented out the error lines (which is frowned upon), and my UI design is visible (without the lines and circles). I can see the tools in the Tool Box, and in fact I can add a line to my existing UI. However if I add a line, I get the same error (Microsoft.VisualBasic.PoserPacks.LineShape is not defined. I have tried to remove the reinstall the PowerPack - doesn't help. Anyone have any ideas about this? I really need my lines and circles!
Thanks in advance
