Default Disturbing lack of support

I am really disturbed that the downloaded examples don't work. The examples in chapter 14 and 15 still use components dropped in beta 2.

I'm sorry if you're having trouble with the code for this book. I haven't had any specific feedback about these examples. It's possible that you're using an earlier version of the code, perhaps for a previous edition?

If you post some more specific details I'll do my best to solve any problems that you may be having.

problem with chapter 15? for eg:
in the manual menus solution, if you try to compile:
Error 1 'System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem' does not contain a definition for 'SettingsKey' C:\BOOKS_TUTORIALS_TRAINING_MATERIALS\Programming_ Languages\C_SHARP\wrox_code\578472_Source_Code\578 472_Chapter15\578472_Chapter15\Examples\Manual Menus\Manual Menus\Form1.Designer.cs 81 34 Manual Menus

and there are 19 of this errors.
for the chapter 14 i had to spend some time to correct examples and all of them are working now.
the question i have is:
1' is this a begginers book? if so, how come "begginer" cannot use the exaples w/o funkying with them.
2' could you please go through the examples one by one and try them with VS2005? correct and post new code with a sticky note on the forum ehre or @ lease a note in the forum that will make users aware of it and download the new code.
my $0.02

p.s. most likely, the ch15 examples can be fixed in a little time, but that should be authors job, not the readers :(.

I've was looking into these problems last night. The problems are caused by the auto generated code made by the Visual Studio version that was used at the time of writing, which included a few properties that was made obsolete after the second beta. This should of cause not have made it into the projects that were released for download, and I can only apologise for that.

I am currently in Barcelona for the TechEd conference and so am unable to get at the code and info I need to correct the code, but I will make sure that the code is corrected when I get home this weekend and Wrox will have the changes uploaded early next week.
