Issue compiling VS 2017

Tue Jul 10, 2018 2:41 am

I'm new to Raspberry Pi. I have a Pi 3 B. Been writing software for years, VB 10+, C# 8+.

I'm trying to write some software that will eventually operate a model railroad layout. All I'm doing now is trying to get a few buttons to toggle on and off. I'm using VB for this project.

When I compile to anything (Device or Remote Machine) I get an error:

Cannot find type System.ComponentModel.Composition.ExportAttribute in module System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll

I have 5 different Windows SDK's installed. According to the Object Browser the one the project is referencing is 10.0.15138. I can't change this.

I've downloaded System.ComponentModel.Composition with NuGet and that didn't help.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on? I'm scratching my head on this one.

You are much more likely to get a sane reply by posting on https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forum ... WindowsIoT where the VS2017 folks are more likely to see your question.
