Problems with building solution

There are two readme's. The first one points you to src/readme.txt.

Paint.NET Source Code Readme

Prerequisites

-------------

1. The source must be located in a directory that does not have spaces in its

full path name. So extracting and building from your desktop won't work. The

reason for this requirement is related to a limitation with the help file

compiler.

So, for example:

Works: c:\src\pdn_2_1_src\

Won't: c:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\pdn_2_1_src

2. Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, or newer. You might be fine with Windows

2000 but this hasn't been tested.

3. Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional

4. .NET Framework 1.1 with SP1

Install .NET 1.1 using programs/dotnetfx.exe, and then apply SP1 with the

appropriate executable from the programs/dotnet_1_1_sp1 directory.

5. Tablet PC SDK v1.7

Install this from the programs directory, or download from Microsoft:

Sometimes when you get this, try...

1. Close all windows within Visual Studio

2. Close Visual Studio

3. Run the 'clean.bat' batch file in the src directory

4. Open Visual Studio, and the paintdotnet solution

5. Immediately do Build -> Rebuild Solution

Never fails to work for me. Visual Studio gets confused and cranky sometimes. I find that always doing a Rebuild instead of just a Build helps keep it in check better.
