    VC++ 2005 Express Edition Error: error C2605: 'Dispose' : this method is reserved w

    Hi,

    i'm trying to debug a VC++ program. I guss it was coded in VC++ 8.0 and i am using VC++ 2005 EE.

    This is the code:
    Code:
    #pragma once
    
    namespace Editor
    {
    	using namespace System;
    	using namespace System::ComponentModel;
    	using namespace System::Collections;
    	using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    	using namespace System::Data;
    	using namespace System::Drawing;
    
    	/// <summary>
    	/// Summary for Form1
    	///
    	/// WARNING: If you change the name of this class, you will need to change the
    	///          'Resource File Name' property for the managed resource compiler tool
    	///          associated with all .resx files this class depends on.  Otherwise,
    	///          the designers will not be able to interact properly with localized
    	///          resources associated with this form.
    	/// </summary>
    	public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
    	{
    	public:
    		Form1(void)
    		{
    			InitializeComponent();
    			//
    			//TODO: Add the constructor code here
    			//
    		}
    
    	protected:
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Clean up any resources being used.
    		/// </summary>
    		/// <param name="disposing">"description of the parameter"</param>
    		 virtual void Dispose(Boolean disposing) override
    		{
    			if (disposing && components)
    			{
    				delete components;
    				
    			}
    			__super::Dispose(disposing);
    		}   
    		
    	
    	private:
    		
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Required designer variable.
    		/// </summary>
    		System::ComponentModel::Container ^components;
    
    #pragma region Windows Form Designer generated code
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
    		/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
    		/// </summary>
    		void InitializeComponent(void)
    		{
    			this->components = gcnew System::ComponentModel::Container();
    			this->Size = System::Drawing::Size(300,300);
    			this->Text = L"Form1";
    			this->Padding = System::Windows::Forms::Padding(0);
    			this->AutoScaleMode = System::Windows::Forms::AutoScaleMode::Font;
    		}
    		
    #pragma endregion
    		
    	};
    }
    and the error message is :

    ------ Build started: Project: Editor, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------

    i've read a few articles and i've been advised that we need to use a distructor so i modified the code a bit ( I dont know if it is Right or Wrong :( )

    Code:
    	#pragma once
    
    
    	namespace Editor
    	{
    		using namespace System;
    		using namespace System::ComponentModel;
    		using namespace System::Collections;
    		using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    		using namespace System::Data;
    		using namespace System::Drawing;
    
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Summary for Form1

    		///          the designers will not be able to interact properly with localized
    		///          resources associated with this form.
    		/// </summary>
    		public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
    		{
    		public:
    			Form1(void)
    			{
    				InitializeComponent();
    				//
    				//TODO: Add the constructor code here
    				//
    			}
    
    		protected:
    			
    			
    				
    			~Form1(){ 			
    				if(components){
    					delete components;
    					this->!Form1(); 
    				}
    			}
    			!Form1(); 
    
    
    		private:
    			
    			/// <summary>
    			/// Required designer variable.
    			/// </summary>
    			System::ComponentModel::Container ^components;
    
    	#pragma region Windows Form Designer generated code
    			/// <summary>
    			/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
    			/// the contents of this method with the code editor.
    			/// </summary>
    			void InitializeComponent(void)
    			{
    				this->components = gcnew System::ComponentModel::Container();
    				this->Size = System::Drawing::Size(300,300);
    				this->Text = L"Form1";
    				this->Padding = System::Windows::Forms::Padding(0);
    				this->AutoScaleMode = System::Windows::Forms::AutoScaleMode::Font;
    			}
    			
    	#pragma endregion
    			
    		};
    	}
    But then i get the error :
    Compiling...
    Editor.cpp
    Linking...

    Welcome to the forum, karthix.

    Just for the record, please use code-tags when posting code.

    Editor.obj : error LNK2020: unresolved token (06000003) Editor.Form1::!Form1
    Well, in your code you've defined the !Form1 finalizer, but you didn't declare it (you left out the body part).

    MSVCURTD.lib(mcrtexew.obj) : error LNK2028: unresolved token (0A00000A) "extern "C" int __clrcall WinMain(struct HINSTANCE__ *,struct HINSTANCE__ *,char *,int)" (?WinMain@@$$J0YMHPAUHINSTANCE__@@0PADH@Z) referenced in function "int __clrcall WinMainCRTStartup(void)" (?WinMainCRTStartup@@$$FYMHXZ)
    MSVCURTD.lib(mcrtexew.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "extern "C" int __clrcall WinMain(struct HINSTANCE__ *,struct HINSTANCE__ *,char *,int)" (?WinMain@@$$J0YMHPAUHINSTANCE__@@0PADH@Z) referenced in function "int __clrcall WinMainCRTStartup(void)" (?WinMainCRTStartup@@$$FYMHXZ)
    It seems that you forgot to create an entrypoint (WinMain).

    You posted in the wrong forum.

    Your code is managed C++. Your post should go in the .NET forum, not the Visual C++ forum.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and paractice; in practice there is.

    Re: VC++ 2005 Express Edition Error: error C2605: 'Dispose' : this method is reserv

    Hi WildFrog:

    Thank you very very much for your reply:

    I changed the code to :
    ~Form1(){
    if(components){
    delete components;
    this->Form1::!Form1();
    }
    }
    !Form1()
    {

    }
    and in the Project settings under system i changed the subsystem from Windows to Console.

    It is not giving me any more errors. But i was wondering if this was the right way to do it or not, and would it make a big difference if the subsystem is in Windows or Console.

    Thanx :)
