We have recently found a bug in Measurement Studio 2010 regarding the dialog that is shown when upgrading projects to Visual Studio 2010. If you have installed Measurement Studio 2010 you
try to upgrade a Measurement Studio project to be used in Visual Studio 2010, you might see one of the following two things:
You might see an evaluation watermark on the “Update Project References” dialog box.
You might see a SandGrid
for Windows Forms dialog box stating that your evaluation has expired.
In both cases above, you can safely continue to upgrade your project by pressing the Update button in the first dialog or the OK button on the second dialog. After pressing
the OK button on the second dialog, you will be shown the first dialog with the watermark, but you can safely click the Update button to upgrade your Measurement Studio class library references. After continuing, your Measurement Studio class library references will be successfully upgraded.
Both cases above can occur for an evaluation or an
activated version of Measurement Studio. Therefore, if you have already
activated your copy of Measurement Studio, the
above dialog boxes do not imply that your activation of Measurement Studio failed.
The National Instruments Measurement Studio team does have a licensed version of the
“SandGrid for Windows Forms” control. Both cases above are the result of a bug in the build process for Measurement Studio 2010 support for Visual Studio 2010. We are currently working on providing a fix for this issue, and we will post back to this thread as soon as a fix is available.
