Unable to read the resource information from the licx file 

The .licx file could not be read by the project system. As part of preparing licenses, the project system will transform text .licx files into binary resources files that are suitable for use with the COM+ licensing model.

The .licx file is automatically generated or updated by the Windows Forms Designer whenever a licensed control is added to the form. There is one .licx file per project; it is always in the root folder and is always named Licenses.licx.

Some reasons for this error:

  • Permission denied.

  • Lost communication with the Web server for Web projects.

The build process will fail if this error occurs.
