VS 2015: Fixed Path in references problem

(Carlos Frias) #1

IDE: Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
Target (If relevant): .Net WPF
Description: References paths are lost if “Fixed Path” is set to False in reference properties, “HintPath” disapear in project file.

Error list show “() Reference ‘OpenCvSharp.UserInterface’ could not be resolved for target ‘Echoes’ (Echoes .NET anycpu).”

Problem with references

Isn’t that pretty much what setting this property to False is supposed to do?

Dependent DLLs are not copied to the output

I think you would have to put a relative reference in “HintPath”, something like “…/…/…/Lib/xxxx.dll” so that the compiler can resolve the reference and not issue an error.

TBH, I dont know what that option in VS is supposed to to — drop the hint path, or make it relative. The name is pretty ambiguous, and could mean both. @viktoriad?

that said, your project needs a hint path, whether full or relative, to find the dll.
