Steps to reproduce:
1. Create solution.
2. Add project TestProgram to it (console app).
3. Add project TestLib (library).
4. Add some code in TestLib.
5. Make TestProgram call the code in TestLib (TestProgram reference TestLib).
6. Disable build of TestLib in DEBUG configuration.
7. Delete manually all bin and obj folders.
8. Rebuild solution on DEBUG configration.
TestProgram compilation fails saying if you're missing an assembly reference (TestLib not found).
TestProgram compilation fails because file TestLib/bin/Debug/TestLib.dll is not found. (Still kind of obscure message, but at least it gives a hint)
Expected results (we could be better than MS.NET here):
Fail the build of TestProgram with something like "TestProgram depends on TestLib project, which is not configured to be built in this configuration: DEBUG"
This bug has an easy workaround if you know that the bug exists (simply fix the build configuration), so not sure if I'll have enough motivation to fix it...
