Build error in Hydra module project with newer Elements versions

What can I do?

RemObjects Elements with Water
Visual Studio Professional 2022

Is there already a solution to this problem? I would like to switch to the latest version of Visual Studio, but the error in the Echoes build prevents this.

My sincerest apologies for the delay, i will chase this up with the team and make sure you get a reply tomorrow.



hmm, I don’t see any email from you in support@ for last month.
Can you resend it, pls?

note: you can PM on this forum to support team or to me


I can’t reproduce this issue with the latest Elements build.
Can you retest it with .2839, pls?
