Description PaXLiCh 2014-06-24 11:07:03 UTC
Problem with any project from visual studio, which have links to dll's in project folders or anywhere else:
For example C:/My project/dlls/mydll.dll

In "Edit References" window, links to dll files will shown as
C:\Program Files\Xamarin Studio\bin\<name_of_assemblie_without_extension>
I editor a lot of errors like "namespace does not exist in the current context".

But if doubleclick on dll in "references" folder in solution tree, "assembly browser" opens this dll.

I have checked this issue and observed the same behavior mentioned in bug description. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps below:

1. Create a console application in VS 2012.
2. Add a dll reference in created console application.
3. Save and close the application.
4. Open the created application in XS.
5. Open "Edit References" window and observed the issue mentioned in bug description.
