I am writing regarding an error that has very recently (yesterday) appeared in the development environment of a piece of C# software that has been under development for nearly three years. The code is housed in a Subversion Repository and five developers total (including myself are working on it) using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (originally we used MSVS 2008).
The MSVS solution is a collection of 8 projects and a main form (call if frmX) which has a TabControl on it which coincidentally has 8 TabPages on it (i.e., there is not one TabPage per project). To make the code more managable frmX is broken into a total of 9 files; the main file which has a Designer.cs file and 8 auxillary files, one for each TabPage.
Last night when I opened frmX from the MSVS Solution Explorer by double-clicking it, I received 9 identical error messages which appeared one after the other, all of which say:
No error message available, result code: DB_SEC_E_AUTH_FAILED(0x80040E4D).
I don't know that there are 9 because there are 9 frmX files but it seems related...
After clicking OK on these errors, the form opens in the MSVS Designer. The code will clean successfully. The code will build successfully. The code will run.
Two of us have been chasing this problem today but cannot find any reason for why they are appearing. Any thoughts on where these are coming from and how we can get rid of them?
