Description emoriarty 2015-07-14 13:20:23 UTC
Ran into an issue where mcs does not accept a pair of FSharp dll's that csc will happily use. I wasn't able to figure out how to create equivalent DLL's from scratch unfortunately. 

Steps to Reproduce.

1. git clone https://github.com/StackExchange/dapper-dot-net
2. cp dapper-dot-net/packages/FSharp.Core.4.0.0/lib/FSharp.Core.dll .
3. cp dapper-dot-net/packages/FSPowerPack.Core.Community. .
4. Create a simple test file, for the purpose of getting the CS1705 error the contents don't really matter. For example 
   namespace A {
      class Foo {} 

5. mcs /t:library /r:FSharp.Core.dll /r:FSharp.PowerPack.dll /noconfig A.cs 
error CS1705: Assembly `FSharp.PowerPack, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' references `FSharp.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' which has a higher version number than imported assembly `FSharp.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

6. csc accepts this (From VS2012 Developer Command prompt)
csc /t:library /r:FSharp.Core.dll /r:FSharp.PowerPack.dll /noconfig A.cs
Microsoft (R) Visual C# Compiler version 12.0.21005.1
for C# 5
