Description Lluis Sanchez 2013-08-28 14:28:40 UTC
Project.Load(TextReader) clears the FullFileName property, so when the build engine tries to resolve references, it does it from the wrong path.

Example (by mhutch):

            var thisDir = Path.GetDirectoryName(typeof (Program).Assembly.Location); 
            var engine = new Engine();
            var p = new Project(engine);
            var projectFile = Path.GetFullPath(args[0]);
            p.FullFileName = projectFile;
            Console.WriteLine(p.FullFileName == projectFile);
This prints true on MS.NET, false on Mono.

In addition to keep the value of FullFileName, Load should also call PushThisFileProperty to initialize the project location variables.
