Ecxeption adding control

Post by Mosir Poranki »

Hello gents

I am using visual studio 2013 on Windows 10. I am trying this:
- Create new project
- C#
- Windows Forms Application
- Open project properties, go to Build tab
- Changed Platform target to x64
- Tried to add the control to the form
I get this error message and nothing appears in the form:

---------------------------
Microsoft Visual Studio
---------------------------
Failed to create component 'AxHost'. The error message follows:

'System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.

at System.Windows.Forms.Design.DocumentDesigner.AxToolboxItem.CreateComponentsCore(IDesignerHost host)

at System.Drawing.Design.ToolboxItem.CreateComponentsCore(IDesignerHost host, IDictionary defaultValues)

at System.Drawing.Design.ToolboxItem.CreateComponents(IDesignerHost host, IDictionary defaultValues)

at System.Windows.Forms.Design.OleDragDropHandler.CreateTool(ToolboxItem tool, Control parent, Int32 x, Int32 y, Int32 width, Int32 height, Boolean hasLocation, Boolean hasSize, ToolboxSnapDragDropEventArgs e)'
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

I have 64bit v6.0 update 4989 installed

Would you have any suggestions for me?
Thank you

Hello Mosir
There are two things:
1. Control has to be inserted before changing target platform. This is because Visual Studio itself a 32 bit app
2. Change the target platform to x64 in configuration manager instead of going to the Build properties. Build properties will be set automatically
It should work this way
