    The referenced component could not be found (C#, VS2005-SP1)

    Hi,

    every now and then I get this warning on a simple C# project which
    just contains one .cs-file for some base classes. The only referenced
    DLL is for a typed dataset. The project of the typed dataset is also
    included in the solution.

    When I try to rebuild my project I get this warning and the referenced
    DLL gets marked with an exclamation mark in the solution explorer. If
    I click on the reference the mark disappears. I already tried to
    delete then add the refenrence again. But still "rebuild" brings up
    the warning.

    The property "Specific version" is set to "false". The DLL exists in
    the given path. It makes no difference wether "Copy Local" is set to
    true or false. Normaly I use "true".

    Can somebody tell me what I have to do to get rid og this warning?

    TIA,
    Stefan

    It sounds like you have two projects in your solution, and you've referenced
    a DLL built by one project from another project directly as a file (i.e.,
    you added a file reference, not a project reference).

    In this case, I wonder if what actually happens is that you rebuild the
    entire solution (and not just the second project). When it builds the first
    project, it deletes the .dll before rebuilding it - perhaps at that moment
    VS itself detects it, and displays that warning? Of course, by the time you
    click on it, the first project has finished building, and the DLL is already
    there...
