Interesting little bug that I ran into today. If you reference a Windows Forms project from another Windows Forms project using the Project Reference dialog, you will get this weird error:
Could not find file 'Microsoft.Windows.CommonLanguageRuntime, Version=2.0.50727.0'
There is actually a KB on it, but it doesn't show up in Google, or of course in MSDN search:
Learn something new every day. Service Pack 1, anyone?
Need a file from a secure network share? Trying to actually understand the NetworkCredentials classes? Good freakin luck!
I went through the snippets, searched google, and read the MSDN library cover to virtual cover before I just dialed in.
DownloadFile? Does it have an overload with username and password?
Well I'll be a son of a ...
My.Computer.Network.DownloadFile("\\192.168.1.3\share\point\test.xls", "c:\text.xls", "user", "password")
Works like a charm.
