Description Marius Ungureanu 2014-05-15 06:11:26 UTC
If a project is not built normally under active configuration, but is referenced by a project, the IDE will build it.

A commandline builder like MSBuild will fail to build correctly in this case.

I have tried to reproduce but I am not able to reproduce this issue using following steps:

I have only a library project which gives build error when I build it. Now I have added another project template(Android) and referenced library project to this project(Android), If I make android project to start up and build it, it still showing me build error.

Can you please provide me test project or steps so that I can also reproduce it at my end?
