CFBuild: Build and Run buttons disabled when reopening project?

I have received a number of emails mentioning that the Build and Run buttons are disabled when you reopen a Compact Framework project. Unfortunately this is a bug in the current release (which is fixed in the next version).

To workaround this bug, perform the following steps:
  1. Load project
  2. Right click on the project in the Project Manager and select the "Compact Framework Project Options" menu item
  3. A dialog will display with a checkbox on it. Check the checkbox and click OK
  4. Build and Run buttons should now enable correctly

A new version is just about ready to be released that addresses this issue.

If you have any requests or bugs you have come across I suggest you send me an email about them real soon.

JED, while you are working on fixing this problem: Is it possible to clear the message window on compile to get rid of old compiler messages?

Achim: Hmm. They should be already. I think the message view doesn't update immediately so you still see the old messages while the compile is happening. I'll see what I can do about that.

Anon: If you have VS2003 you can use SQL CE database. Video upcoming on creating a database and adding some data to it. As far as other alternatives, do you need the DB local or can you access it via a web service or other remote means?
