FIX: System.Exception exception when you update a menu in a .NET Compact Framework 3.5 application for Windows Embedded Compact 7

Symptoms

  • You create a menu, and then assign it to a Windows Form application.
  • You try to update the menu.

In this scenario, the .NET Compact Framework 3.5 application may throw a System.Exception exception.

Note This issue may also affect other applications that are not .NET Compact Framework 3.5 applications.
