A first chance exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
I've read a bit about this error and maybe I have nothing to worry about.  BUT ... my simple little app gets 7 of these before it even gets to the first Dim statement in the Class Form1!  I found and followed instructions on how to have the Debugger intercept these exceptions but it seems that they are not being intercepted.  I only know that they have happened because of the messages in the Immediate Window.  In the Designer all I have is 5 Labels and 5 TextBoxes.   Any thoughts on how I could get to the cause of these messages? Thanks,  Bob

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException'


After calling a very simple WCF Service I bind the result an Observable Collection of Countries to WPF ComboBox, in second ComboBox of cities I displayed the filtered cities based on the selected country. It works fine the first time but when I select another country it takes lots of time to display, the Visual Studio 2010 output displays this like 50 times:

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in mscorlib.dll

Intereting to point out that it only happens if I try to open the ComboBox and not if if navigate through code doing something like SelectedIndex=2 . It does not happen as well if instead of the ComboBox I use a ListBox or TreeView.

Some extra details.... the real exception detail is:

An event was unable to invoke any of the subscribers (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040201)

Please help with this bug....

An exception of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException' occurred and was caught


When the Stored procedure is executed through SQL Server Management Studio, its taking 23 seconds

When the same Stored proc is called through web app, its throwing below copied exception. It is noticed that when the data is more than 100k records this exception is thrown other wise expected records are shown in UI. Another stored proc from the same app returns over 150k records without any excetpion.

Can't conclude that the exception is in Stored proc, because it works from SQL Server Management studio, but throws below exception from Web app.

Your help is appreciated in resolving this issue.

Moving from .NET 3.5 to 4.0: A first chance exception of type 'System.AccessViolationException' oc


I'm trying to upgrade my web app from 3.5 to the 4.0 Framework but keep seeing this error when trying to build the solution. The problem is with some code that's in my App_Code directory (that runs on Application_Start), and the error tells me that the class in the App_Code directory is pointing to an older version of the Oracle.DataAccess.Dll... however using Process Explorer I can't see any references to the older DataAccess DLL after updating all references to the newer Oracle DLL

Is there some way to assure the code in my App_Code directory is using the newer version of Oracle.DataAccess? Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

Problem with overriding OnPaint method of System.Windows.Forms.Textbox

Hi,   I want to change the border colour of the Textbox. However, when I override the OnPaint method, some strange behaviour occurs.   The new border is drawn, as is the textbox background. However, the text itself appears in bold and only while I actually type something in, afterwards it disappears. I have provided a sample of my code here:         protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)         {             base.OnPaint(e);             Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(0, 0, this.Width, this.Height);             ControlPaint.DrawBorder(e.Graphics, rect, _BorderColour, ButtonBorderStyle.Solid);         }   I have also set the style of the control to Userpaint, so that the paint method is actually used. Does anybody know how to solve this issue?

'schema.AllCategories' threw an exception of type 'System.UnauthorizedAccessException

We're porting a solution from 2007 to 2010 and we're having trouble accessing the CrawledProperties property from the Schema object. Other properties from the Schema object however are accessible (e.g. AllManagedProperties). It does not matter whether we use the obsolete SearchContext to create the Schema object, or the new SearchServiceApplication (Example code from Steve Curran here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010programming/thread/2550e6e8-34a6-4012-969f-9657dc526d74) Now what's interesting is that the SAME user (Farm administrator) can access the AllCategories using a Windows Forms application, but when using a SharePoint solution (Codebehind on an application page) it doesn't work. We have double-checked that the executing user is the same. The same user can also browse the CrawledProperties using the Central Admin UI. We're experiencing this on several server installations, one of which is the "Standalone" installation of Search Server Express 2010, whereas the same user was used to perform the installation. I'd appreciate any ideas you might have.
