I downloaded the MySQL Connectors for .NET and attempted to import and compile the source under C# Express 2005.  There are a few forms that were included in the source but the resx files are missing.  This makes it difficult to build under any version of Visual Studio.

How to repeat:
download the .NET connector and unzip into a directory.
browse to that directory and browse to the

Two files are immediately seen as forms:

In addition to the cs files, the .resx files should have been included to properly express the controls on the form (location, values, events, etc.).

Without the resx files, it is impossible to compile the source and test the results using the editor/dialog forms.

Suggested fix:
When zipping up this (or any) project that has a form, make sure you include the resx files in the project folder.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been committed to our
source repository of that product and will be incorporated into the
next release.

If necessary, you can access the source repository and build the latest
available version, including the bugfix, yourself. More information 
about accessing the source trees is available at

Additional info:

I have fixed this by removing the SWF files from the project.  An additional assembly will appear with version 1.1 that will include all designer functionality.

Well apparently the fix didn't work because as of May 2007 the 5.0 project still launches looking for Form1.resx, in 2005 express.

Then again, just deleting the resx reference works fine.  :)

We'll double check this but this really shouldn't be happening.
