wx.NET with VB.NET (VS 2012)

Post by ppinter88 »

Found a .NET DLL version of the wxWidgets thru webpage http://www.wxwidgets.org/downloads/, which linked to SourceForge.

Grabbed this and installed wx.NET.dll along with wx-c.dll and added references to my VB.NET project. Ok so far.
However, when I build I get the following error:
The "ResolveManifestFiles" task could not be initialized with its input parameters.
The "ResolveManifestFiles" task failed unexpectedly. System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.

If the reference for wx-c.dll is removed, no compile errors, but when the code needs to reference this DLL during execution, there be a file not found

Have done extensive BINGing and Googling with no resolution yet.

Anyone used the wxWidgets in this manner or have suggestions on how to resolve.

Thank you.

I can't really help you there, but I see the latest news on that website is dated "07-Feb-2011" and AFAFIU the latest wxnet version was based on wxW 2.8.11. Unfortunately it appears that it has been abandoned for a long time.
