Error at line 0?

I'm trying to run RandomCoder's icon editor on my Dell Axim X3 and I'm getting the following error

An error occurred on sub app_start.

Line number: 0

Error description:
Exception
Continue?

(Yes/No)
If I hit yes to continue the program ends silently.

I can run this program fine on my desktop but it doesn't work at all on my pocket pc. Does anyone else have this problem?

Erel, the application wasn't compiled (unless Mistrel compiled it).
I didn't experience any problems with it on my device, I'm using an Axim X51v with WM5.

Mistrel
Hope you get it working and have more success than I did at finishing the project. My next objective was to try and get an icon to load into the editor and if I managed that I was going to try and save the created icon back to a file.
I'm pretty sure there must have been an easier way of approaching the problem, maybe I just made it too difficult for myself?

Have fun with it anyway and feel free to modify it to your own needs.

Regards,
RandomCoder.

I'm getting the same error with my program...

Originally written in ver 4, converted to ver 5, runs fine on the desktop but has the same error as Mistrel. the only thing I can think of is that I recently upgraded the rom on my Jasjam to WM6 (schapps 3.60a cooked rom). This is the first time I've had a problem running software on it. Everything else has been given a new lease on life, running faster & without problems that I had originally with the original Rom.

Something else to consider...

having failed to run the compiled app on my device, I copied across the source & attempted to run that on the devices programming environment. This time I got the error :
Error loading external library :
An error message cannot be displayed because an optional resource assembley containing it cannot be found.

I'm suspicious that one (or more) of the libraries used by my program is not working with MW6.
These are :
treeview.dll
Hardware.dll
RegistryDevice.dll
FormLib.dll

I'll have to see whether these may have been upgraded since the 5.5 release

Sorry Erel...

System_SR_ENU_wm.cab made no difference to the error messages received either by running my desktop compiled program (errror at line 0) or through running within the device's developer(optional resource asembly not found).:sign0148:

To avoid the "optional resource assembly..." message you should install the file attached to this thread: http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/showthread.php?t=870
It will not fix the problem, but it will show you a more descriptive error message.
I tried to install that cab and got a

'Setup Failed'
System_SR_ENU_wm.cab is not a valid Window CE Setup file. :sign0163:

Finally got around to trying it all again...

This time I did get a few more clues. My program has a problem with treeview.dll which I now suspect must have been dropped in the latest versions of basic4PPC as I haven't got the library files anymore following the 5.8 upgrade. Can someone let me know what has happened/possible fix. I'm obviously not up with the play.

Cheers.

Ok figured out what I needed was another library for external libraries. Where would I be without this forum & it's ability to search right back... Thanks Erel for a great program & support
