COM SDK problem with reference designer.tlb
When trying to use COM SDK and add reference designer.tlb to my project in Visual Studio I receives the following message:
A reference to designer.tlb could not be added. Please make sure that the file is accessible, and that it is a valid assembly or COM component.
I'm using BusinessObjects XI 3.1
I want to create a tool to change passwords for existing connections.
I read that the only way to change the password of an existing connection is to use COM SDK.
Java SDK has no method to obtain a user name, connection parameters, etc.
I want to create a project in visual studio add com component (designer.tbl) and create application in C#.
I found a business object tutorial (http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/boc/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/205ace60-6c64-2b10-f593-84945e80a70f?quicklink=index&overridelayout=true) that shows how to do it. But it is rather old.
How to deal with the problem?
I wrote a post here COM SDK problem with reference designer.tlb but got a message to move it to this category.
