Echo project references


(JohnMoshakis) #1

I have a solution with an echoes console and class library. I have added the class library as a reference to the console. When I build the class library isnt copied to the consoles bin folder, even though it has copy local set.

As a result the console app wont run.

Thanks,
John

is it set to copy local?


(JohnMoshakis) #3

Yes, It gets automatically set if you drag and drop the project. I did try and toggle it but that didn’t help.

hm, ok. will investigate.

Also fixed, CopyLocal didn’t carry over for project references to the actual reference.

Shouldnt the mdb files be copied as well ?

In my console app I make reference to a class in another project. Debugging in the console app I cant use f7 to step into the method of the class.

Hmm. Probably, yeah. I’ll have a look. Do you have a convenient test case?

With this one, it also doesnt copy the assembly. Its copying the project reference with another, just not the mdb.
