    I have installed 14,2 using VS 19 version 16.7.3. I move a report from a project using AR 9, I am getting the below error. I think I have tried everything but cannot resolve the issue. Please help.

    Dim resources As System.ComponentModel.ComponentResourceManager = New System.ComponentModel.ComponentResourceManager(GetType(Resources.arEJ150001))

    Return Resources.arEJ150001.ResourceManager

    Do you have the image in the report. Could you try to re-add the image and run the application.

    If issue still occurs, could you please share the report with dummy db so that I can run the report at my end.

    I can't re-add the image because I can't get to the designer.

    Are you facing the error(mentioned in initial post) at design time or runtime?
    >>because I can't get to the designer.
    Could you please share the screenshot of the SectionReport Designer error.

    If possible, can you share the report with us so that I can look into the report.
