Description: Changing the startup form's name in a VB WinForms app does not update the "Startup form" #4517
Explanation: In the latest Visual Basic update on GitHub, Microsoft accidentally introduced a significant bug that you should be aware of. In the Visual Basic project properties dialog on one of the tabs (Application), is a drop down box for selecting the "startup object". This can be either a Main method or a System.Windows.Forms instance (or System.Windows.Window for WPF). When you do a rename on a form (say from the code editor in source or from the solution explorer) currently set as the startup form the rename doesn't cascade to the startup object project property cause the project to enter an invalid state where the user must now manually reset this project property from the now nonexistent Form to the new name. This is a huge annoyance.
The fix for the bug (until Microsoft addresses) can be found here:

Foxall is a great communicator and teacher.
Don't pass-up reading this masterpiece.
Hour 21 cost me an hour or two trying to figure out why there was a problem. Firstly, he refers to an MDB (which is an Access extension) when he really meant an MDF (a SqlServer extension). After that, he refers to the table as "Contacts" in his code sample when he meant "tblContacts".. These were the ONLY errors in the book. I also had to convert his Sql2014 MDF to Sql2016. - no great shakes.
A very good book for absolute beginners.
I am a Computer Engineer who finished his studies in ... 1987 (the good old times of Borland and Turbo Pascal)
Had been out of the programming world since 1995 or so, and I needed to do a job in UI for Windows.
So I decided I will delve in .NET and chose VB over C# (thinking the syntax of VB protects the coder better).
This book was recommended by Derek Banas in a excellent VB beginners course on YouTube.
I am very glad I bought it. I quickly skim thourgh some pages (general programming concepts), and mostly get quick answers to all my uqestions in the VB environment.
Hope my experience helps.
If anyone cares, I went through the book on a Windows 10 Professional machine using SQL Server 2014 and Visual Studio Community 2015.
Make sure to go to James Foxall's web site and read the errata before starting the book. That may save you a bit of time.
Sadly, the book breaks down badly in Chapter 21, working with a database. The reader is instructed to download the contacts.mdb database from James Foxall's web site, and you'd think it would be in the downloads for this book, but it isn't. In fact, if you go to Mr. Foxall's site and look at the discussion threads, problems locating sample databases mentioned in his books seems to be a recurring theme.
I never did find contacts.mdb, so I downloaded the Adventure Works sample SQL database and adapted the material in chapter 21 to use it. Just recently, a poster at Mr. Foxall's site said he located the contacts.mdb database in the downloads for the 2008 version of this book. Too late for me.
This book will get you at least comfortable with the Visual Studio 2015 IDE, but just scratch the surface of it's functionality. And, when you finish the book you likely won't be able to code anything that anyone would actually want to use, but you'll be on you way.
After this book I went through Beginning Visual Basic 2015 by Bryan Newsome, that book covers a lot of the same material but in a very different way. This book starts with the IDE and works into the code, and Newsome's book starts with the code and works out into the IDE. Two books are often better than one, and I'm glad I went through them both. Between the two, I gained the confidence to make the leap to C#, which I'm learning now.
I do suggest running Visual Studio at the same time, and doing the steps as the author recommends. It is a great way to reinforce what is being presented.
