Description Marek Safar 2012-12-04 04:52:18 UTC
When dealing with large project MT2002 error is not helpful because it's missing assembly details

E.g. I get 

error MT2002: Can not resolve reference: System.Void Foo::.ctor()

but it's not easy to find out where that type Foo is or should be

Fixed in master: 2dc48588bd425188a8315b080021f455b932548c

Errors should now look like:

error MT2002: Failed to resolve System.Void ModTest::Main(System.String[]) reference from "test-416, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
