Hello, I am using Visual Basic 2010 and whenever I try to build a project, I get this error message.

Error 1 Unable to open file 'C:UsersAlexanderDocumentsVisual Studio 2010ProjectsWindowsApplication1WindowsApplication1objx86DebugWindowsApplication1.Resources.resources': Not enough storage is available to process this command. WindowsApplication1

I know It says that I don't have enough storage, but how do I fix it. Please help.

PS. I am running Windows 7

Go to too accessories, System tools, Disk Clean up. Run that appliaction first to check to see what you can clear up on any temp files or files that can be easily removed from your computer without wrecking havoc on it. Make sure that when it is finisihed doing that it will come up with a list where it will show you what it can remove without a problem. Make sure that there are check marks on the boxes mostly all of them. and then click on okay to start removing the temp files. It should clear a fair amount.

Or you can go to this web site http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=15&Itemid=69 which has an application which is very small. And does a very good job in clearing up old files. I've seen it clear up over a 11 gigs of temp files easily on a computer that was several ears old. Once that is done do a disk defragmentation to clean everything up and you should be fine. How much disk space do you have left on your computer?

I have about 40 gigs left, but it just isn't opening the reource file. Is there anyway I can make that file bigger?

Seems like a very long file path. Is the 256 character restriction still active on Win7?

Try Build > Clean Solution. This will erase all the files visual studio makes when it compiles. I do this whenever I get odd errors, sometimes it works sometimes it does not.

Will this work for visual basic 2010?

Never mind it didn't work...

Visual Basic 2010 has been throwing up a lot of odd errors recently after some of the security updates to the .Net framework. (I'm sure that the fact that Microsoft is launching a new edition of Visual Studio at this time is purely coincidental!) Check that it will still compile a simple program (say a form with one button and no code) before you start trying to combat this error. I've abandoned VB altogether because it just doesn't want to play ball - even a clean Windows install proved to be only a temporary fix.
