Resource transformation for file 'file' failed. <reason>

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The resources processor used to transform .resx files into binary .resources files failed. The specific reason (if any) is appended to the end of the string.

This error is most likely caused by a bad .resx file. For example, the file may have been opened and modified in a text editor.

The build process will fail if this error occurs.
