VCT Problem

VCT Problem

(OP)
My program which has been working for years froze up the running versions and won't load the new version. The error says the VCT is missing or invalid. The path it shows for the class isn't even in the users' mappings and never has been. They are running an EXE on another drive, which shouldn't need any access to my code drive. I have restored an old copy of the VCT and VCX files and rebuilt everything in the hopes it would take care of the problem. I don't understand how the class could affect older versions of an exe. The update I just made is inconsequential. Is there something I'm missing? Meanwhile I'm stressed and they're dead in the water.

RE: VCT Problem

I would check that the VCT files are included in your project output.

Look in your IDE project manager for an exclude sign next to the VCT name (it's like a circle
with a line through it) if there is one, right click on the item and select Include.

RE: VCT Problem

(OP)
Thanks so much for your response. Somehow my VCT file was added to Other Files in addition to Classes in the project manager. I removed it from other files, rebuilt everything and it now runs. I found this after creating a completely new project including dozens of forms and reports. I don't know how or why, but we're back up.

RE: VCT Problem

Well done
