For the last couple of months I’ve been working on a project on which the entire Visual Studio solution has 65 projects.
Luckily I’ve been able to work with a smaller solution with only a subset of the projects: The ones that I was working directly with and the ones that I needed for a reason or another.
Unfortunately a couple of weeks ago, the time to start integrating my projects to the main solution arrived and since then I and other team members have been having troubles setting up references between projects.
I ended up detecting that the problems where caused by the references being set by file when for the sake of easy compilation they should been referenced by project.
I then reviewed all the projects setting their reference types to project references and the number of issues fell dramatically.
But occasionally a team member was getting compilation errors during to version number conflicts.
Imagine that project A depends on projects B and C and that B and C depend on different versions of D.
When you try to build the entire solution, although references where set to projects instead of files, Visual Studio 2003 couldn’t compile project A stating that there where conflicting versions of D in the bin folder.
Well, to get the story short, after trying to get rid of the error I searched around and ended up finding an article the explained how to resolve the issue: Error: the dependency ‘file’ in project ‘project’ cannot be copied to the run directory because it would conflict with dependency ‘file’
The .NET Framework 3.0 release candidate has just been made available for downloads.

It looks like my plans on becoming a multi-billionaire referring links to Amazon have failed. 😛
Today I tried to include another book on my list, but the site simply started to generate wrong URLs.
Another bug that bothers me is the fact from time to time the lists don’t render correctly:
Let’s hope these bugs are fixed as soon as possible.
Since the last time I blogged about my certification activities, I passed 70-315, 70-442, 70-549 and 70-552. Passing theses exams, I became MCAD in C#, MCTS Windows Applications and MCPD Windows Developer.
Testing Centers recently started receiving applications for a new beta exam called "Exam 71-540 Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 App Development". More information can be found here.
I’m doing this blog post from Windows Live Writer just as a test.
PS.: Testing to see if the spell checker works.
Some have already done their job – as the ones I bought to study towards certification. Others are simply bad books.
What do you do with the books you don’t want anymore?
Keep them anyway? Give them away? Sell them? How do you sell them?
