MS is going to obsolete themselves if they don’t get their arse in gear


The BS that is MS

If I hit build or debug the code works fine. But if I try to publish, I get this BS.

When I go to the tmp file, I get this BS.

System.Exception: Build failed. Check the Output window for more details.

Why send me to the temp file, just to get a message that says go to the output window. Just dump this to the flipping output window.

Finally, I go to the output window, and see

CSC(0,0): Error CS0006: Metadata file ‘C:\MyCode\My.Root\src\My.IdentityProviderServiceExtenders\bin\Release\netcoreapp2.2\win-x86\My.IdentityProviderServiceExtenders.dll’ could not be found

CSC(0,0): Error CS0006: Metadata file ‘C:\ MyCode \Lcp.Fortify.Root\src\My.Public\bin\Release\netcoreapp2.2\win-x86\My.Public.dll’ could not be found.

So I go to those directories, and I see the files that it is claiming don’t exists. So More BS!!!

  1. So WTF can I clean the whole solution, build and debug, but the publish cannot seem to do the same?
  2. Also WTF do I have to bound through 3  locations, 4 windows, to get this information?

This is why NodeJS is going to obsolete MS, and I suspect this is why so many people have jumped onto the VS Code bandwagon rather than using VS everywhere.

UPDATE: 8/9/2020

I don’t know what fixed this, but it eventually fixed itself. Meaning either an MS server patch, or a VS patch fixed it.
