Loading texture ? - SFML 2.1 - VS2013

after a couple of years of inactivity, I am trying to learn how to use SFML.net with vs2013. (as XNA is discontinued, I had to learn something new).

I am struggling to do a very simple texture loading. Here is what I did :

  • Created a new windows console solution.
  • loaded SFML (via Nugget PM)
  • Created a resources folder (Project settings)
  • loaded a basic texture in this resource folder

The program loads the texture, creates a sprite with this texture, positions it and draws it. Should be a gentle start right ? Except that it gives me an error saying that the texture cannot be loaded.

(PS : SFML seems to be a very good library in C++ but the documentation is very poor in other languages to my point of view)

Here is the (very simple) code :

using SFML.Graphics;
using SFML.Window;
using SFML.Audio;
using System;

namespace SFMLApplication1
    public static class Program
        private static readonly Color CornflowerBlue = new Color(100, 149, 237);
        public static void Main(string[] args)
            RenderWindow window = new RenderWindow(new VideoMode(1280, 720), "SFML Window");
            window.Closed += (sender, eventArgs) => window.Close();

            while (window.IsOpen())
                // TODO: Insert Update Code Here
                Texture playertxr = new Texture("sonic.png");
                Sprite playerspr = new Sprite(playertxr);
                playerspr.Position = new Vector2f(200, 400);
                // TODO: Insert Draw Code Here
