SYMPTOMS

When you build a Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 project in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, you may receive the following error message:

1>ResGen : error RG0000: The file named "PathOfTheResource\resgen" does not have a known extension. Managed resource files must end in .ResX, .txt, or .resources.

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:

  • The Visual C++ 2005 project uses resources.
  • The paths of the resources are long.


CAUSE

This problem occurs because Visual Studio 2005 uses a command for the Resource File Generator (Resgen.exe) that is more than 32,000 characters. In this case, the command is truncated to 32,000 characters. Therefore, the Resource File Generator reads the truncated command.
