Forms Designer does not show: Value does not fall within the range expected

Very frustrating bug this one.
May be that the .resx file is corrupt. In particular the "Other" section, which is the tray locations
A way of getting the form back is to close Visual Studio and then reopen
Have not tried this.
This suggests
1. Go to Windows Explorer and make a copy of the bad forms .RESX file.
2. In the Solution Explorer, click the Show All Files button.
3. Your form should have a + beside it.  Click it and the .resx should show. Make a copy of the .resx file.
4. Right click on the .resx and delete it.
5. Close the IDE.
6. Restart VS and load your project, the .resx should be ok.
