Cannot change 'value'. The property is read-only.

Visual Studio .NET 2003

This application is governed by development policies defined in an Enterprise Template policy file. You have attempted to change the value of a property that is set to read-only. You can change this behavior by changing the read-only setting.

To solve this problem

  1. Open the policy file associated with this application and search for the property named in the message.
  2. Find the constraint causing the property to be set to read-only (or that sets a default value).
  3. Change the property constraint read-only value to 0 or delete the property constraint, save the changes, close the file, and reopen the project.
