combined assemblies and website solution - intellisense failures

I used to use seperate VS instances for assemblies (106) and a website, but found that with VS2010 and the latest resharper I cann just use a single solution and VS instance, which makes resharper great fro navigating both at once and finding references in both (altho it seems to have to scan the website files sometimes).

However, it seems that certain types of edits to assembly files break the link, and mean that subsequent find usings etc dont show up useages correctly - very dangerous.

Also, I often get lots of red text in my website files (sometimes) as the types are not recognised, and using go to declaration, or any intellisense fails to work.

Hello David
     Could you please elaborate more information on this problem: which version of ReSharper are you using? What kind of changes lead to broken Find Usages and unresolved types in your web-site? Thank you!

R# v6.1 on VS2010

I'm not sure about which changes, but perhaps adding or modify a method signiture, that sort of level of change I think.

I'll try and track it over the next few days to get a better idea


My solution has 108 assembly projects and 1 website project (which has a copy of the .dll files from the assembly folders in its \bin folder)

this is what I get when using "Go to Implementation"

ie it shows the same referebced dll twice, even tho they are the same dll.

Hi David,

Actually, this issue is an old one for us, but we cannot "catch" it in terms of repro and debug.
We will hardly appreciate if you can create and attach here a sample solution, which will demonstrate this issue for us.

Thank you very much in advance!
