Description Dave Thomas 2015-08-14 05:05:28 UTC
In a small project that has a NuGet package (FSharp.Data.SqlClient)
I right-click in a .fs file and choose 'Send references to F# Interactive', FSI fails to find the NuGet package. Output:

--> Referenced '/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.12.0/lib/mono/4.0/System.Core.dll' (file may be locked by F# Interactive process)
--> Referenced '/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.12.0/lib/mono/4.0/System.Data.dll' (file may be locked by F# Interactive process)
#r @"/Users/rojepp/Projects/quicksqlapp/quicksqlapp/../packages/FSharp.Data.SqlClient.1.5.10/lib/net40/FSharp.Data.SqlClient.dll"
/stdin(5,1): error FS0078: Unable to find the file 'Microsoft.SqlServer.TransactSql.ScriptDom.dll' in any of
Note that it is actually a valid path to FSharp.Data.SqlClient, and if I copy that #r statement and execute it manually, it works. Also note that the error message I get is actually about a dll used by SqlClient.

Could it be that we're missing a #silentCd, just prior to sending references. Note, I haven't checked the code yet. I just remember a lot of discussion about this ( #162 ) and Dons suggestion to just send it all the time because it is cheap. :)

- - - 
It is sent before the command, followed by all the #r's afterwards. I suspect in this instance it needs to be sent in-between each #r due to fsi's quirkiness.

I had a quick look, the current file's path is sent (#silentcd) before the list of #r references. I guess for nugets we will have to reconsider the silentcd logic
