This is really weird. I’m playing with the production (RTM) version of VS2005. I add a reference to a DLL (.net assembly) by browsing to the file and choosing it directly. It adds it to the project just fine but it’s referencing a totally different file.
I choose this file “c:codecommondllslog4net.dll” and get this “d:projectssomeplacecompletelydifferentlog4net.dll”.
This file isn’t GAC’d or anything either. Weird, huh? Any ideas?
[Update #1] — I looked at the .csproj.user file for this project and the ReferencePath element had some really weird paths in it. I erased the contents of that tag and it’s working now.
