VS2012 to VS2013 ImageList bug

So the problem is like this. My project was in VS 2012

I installed to VS2013 and opened the project.

Any form which had ImageList inside it, the designer will no longer open


If i click the error it takes me to lines witgh imagelist
the errors are refferences root unavailable or index not found (for image list)


this all worker prior to 2013, and running the programalso works, but editing the forms in design mode does not work.

Please help

Had to close all IDEs,  reopen project
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?
Ess KayEntrapenuerAuthor Commented:
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.
Do you have option strict ON ? turn it off.
