.NET DLL Hell

.NET was supposed to resolve the problem of DLL Hell.

Well that is exactly where I am right now: DLL Hell.

I have wasted so much time on stupid versioning issues and other problems that seem to have no cause whatso ever.

Right now I try to build and I get the error:

Cannot copy assembly ‘ASDF.Web.Controls.DateTimeControls’ to file ‘C:DataWalshVSSRootASDF.Web.UsersbinWalshgroup.Web.Controls.DateTimeControls.dll’. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Thats nice. No one is using the fricking file, and I haven’t had this problem during my last … oh I don’t know… say …10,000 builds, but now it is becoming an issue. Great.

My other new friend is this error:

The located assembly’s manifest definition with name ‘ASDF.Web.Controls.LookupControl’ does not match the assembly reference.

Thats nice… manually updating the reference, removing it and readding it, rebuilding, manually copying the DLLs to the bin etc don’t help. This is a POS. WTF.
