Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-06-06 19:07:41 UTC
To reproduce:
1. Create solution A, create library, build.
2. Close solution A.
3. Create solution B, create project, add reference to dll from A, Build.
4. Close solution B.
5. Open Solution A, add some API to the library, build.
6. Close solution A.
7. Open solution B. Try to use the new API. It's not in code completion, but it builds correctly, and it's visible in the assembly browser.

It looks like MD is caching the parsed dll too aggressively?

It looks like there is a check file call missing - I removed the background polling thread a while ago.
