Beta2 - ASP.NET 2.0 & VSS


Sahil Malik [MVP]

We have a project under development using ASP.NET 2.0. Now the issue is that
there is a BIN directory under the www directory (www is where all the
aspx'es are). The web project references a whole bunch of other dlls, and
anytime any of those dlls change, VStudio 2005 attempts to check out the DLL
from the BIN directory - which doesn't work AT ALL in a multi user scenario.

Even worse, when you try doing a build, it tells you "Files being changed
during a build" - It's only those DLL and PDB files Vstudio, simmer down.

So my question - What the hell do I do to make VSS work with ASP.NET 2.0?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sahil,

This bug has been reported to the site. The workaround is to
clear the 'read-only' flag for all files in your /bin folder. (All
your developers should do this as well.) Then cloak the /bin folder in

Our team has almost come to blows over this. (The guy that checks out
the bin folder now has to buy beer for the rest of us.) All-in-all
this is a very frustrating problem. Are you listening Microsoft? :)
