I have read page explaining how to add resources, can someone help me

here is my complete code,

@ akmishra
Please try this:
[ol]Double click on the Resources.resx file. You should see the resources editor open up. At the top should be a menu bar with an “Add Resources” menu.
Click on the Add Resources menu and then select Add existing file…
Select your WAV file and click Open.[/ol]
Your wav file should now be available as a resource.



I already did that, that did not solve this problem, anyway I was able to get this compile time error solved by puttting code in a namespace which was same as program, this solved this problem, but now I cannot deploy to hardware , it says deploy failed check your hardware

to make sure my setup, environment and hardware is OK or not, I deployed and ran other programs mentioned in book and that works.

Now I cannot deploy to fez panda II hardware, is code size problem…?



Could be size problem if you try to put 5MB resource file on panda :slight_smile:

You need a 5KB file.



file which I downloaded from GHI web site (
is 16KB ( on disk) , how do I check size of executable which gets deployed on FEZ Panda II hardware, before actually deploying it on hardware, so that I can get a proof that size is problem.
