I just there now posted in the NG area of X# within my Thunderbird app - but am not sure if the message will get back to you guys in the Forum. I did however see loads of newly visible post from others.
My question was about me asking you guys for help.
I wish to go over entirely to using X# and that means converting a number of my useful demo apps (from conferences in the past) to pure X#. How do I go about the conversion?
Also can I similarly convert a hybrid of VN and C#, as some Cologne demo apps had a thin DAL (data access layer) written in C#. Now I can do LINQ in X# I don't any longer need toe C# parts.
Also, has Fabrice made a C# to/from X# plugin for Reflector 9 or other ? If not, does he intend to do so ?
I had big steps forward today with preparing my laptop for Cologne - will report on this fun later ;-0)
I got my nickers in a twist, and I found out that in fact I don't have an exported Vulcan app. which compiles and runs ;-0((
In fact after a few more attempts, over a few hours, I seem to be having trouble with the 'XPorter' tool, with Visual Studio solution and projects files - have tried both with 'XPorter', and a few times over.
My confusion was to do with my PC system, and too many versions of VS over the years, and which versions would work with both Vulcan and X#, etc., etc.... and a few more good excuses too ;-0)
So I am going back to 'basics' - in fact to the first Vulcan app I got to work that did anything worthwhile! My 'Examine Printers' tool.
I seem to get an exported file which looks good, and tries very hard to run in VS2015, but although it reports zero errors, warnings, and messages, it will not run. It does feel VERY close however.
I will place the files in a 'OneDrive' folder for you to have a look at Robert, if you would be so kind. The app is tiny, so don't worry on size issues ;-0)
I noticed that '#USING' is in the final file and not 'using'. Does that make a difference, or should it be changed anyhow even if it doesn't ? I tried 'using' but got the same no-running result.
Once we fix this app, I will gradually work chronologically through my samples. To see which fails, if any. I feel if we fix this then the others will be OK.
This one (application) is a WinForms app - AND - is actually quite useful - used it on-site in customers premises (many years ago) to find out about available printers and their setting. And for testing with different paper sizes, etc., etc..
