I am trying to take advantage of the greatly improved handwriting recognition in vista - i have project with a few dozen ink edit's. I want to simply point them (so i dont have to redraw them all) to the new DLL but i cant seem to do it. i have no imports in my project and when i change the reference(right click on project->properties) to 6.0 i still get the old logic. if i add a new 6.0 inkedit it works as expected and the old ones use the old logic...so how can i point the old inkedit's to the new dll   Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Dan:

Have you tried rebuilding your whole project after changing the reference Let me know if that makes any difference.

Thanks,

Yes i have tried to rebuild it and that didnt work. i removed all references to ink which caused an expected error after which i re-referenced only 6.0 and build again and no luck. is there some secret place where the old ink edit's are referencing the old dll if i add the new one i dont see anywhere in code that it actually references the new version...but it still works (the new one uses the trained handwriting...the old ones still suck) ...how can both instances co-exist hope that makes sense.
Thanks!

Dan

Is what im asking making sense or is it a newbie question that's not worth answering Any ideas or suggestions as to how to fix this / how this stuff is working would be appreciated.

Thanks,


Dan

Hi Dan,

I can't seem to reproduce this on my machines. Here is what I did to test this:

- create a VB.NET project using VS2005 on XP

- add references to MS.Ink.dll v1.7

- drag a few InkEdit controls onto the form

- run app and verify (in the debugger's module view) that the 1.7 version gets picked

- now I copy the project over to my Vista machine

- re-build and launch the app

Result: app picks ap the 6.0 version of MS.Ink.dll

Any app built against MS.Ink.dll 1.7 will by default pick up the 6.0 version on Vista automatically due to the publisher policy we ship in the OS.

Please let me know what I am missing to reproduce the problem.

Thanks, Stefan Wick

Stefan,

it was me - i was setting the factoids to none because the hand writing recognition stunk in XP but i can happily set them to default in vista.

Thanks!
