It looks like you had some issues converting the project. Do you have a References node available in your project? Are you able to expand it and see references? Same with resources?

imagelist1 is never inside the refernces node. its probably pcked inside the references.dll somewhere



If i run the project, all the images work


the refernces root node unavailable points to this message

   Me.imageList1.ImageStream = CType(resources.GetObject("imageList1.ImageStream"), System.Windows.Forms.ImageListStreamer)


the images are clearly there, and you can see them at runtime

All 29 of them for this form
count of 29

Yes I know imagelist would not be in References. I was basing my suggestion on error message.
