VS.NET 2003 crashing while building/rebuilding

Hi Group,

Environment: Windows 2000 Professional, VS.NET 2003
The solution has 30 projects (one main asp.net application and the rest are

We have this annoying behaviour with our ASP.NET application
From time to time, when trying to build or rebuild or run the application,
we experience VS crashes.
VS starts by building the dependent dlls (which is perfectly OK) but when it
comes to the final step - putting everything together and building the main
dll, the VS just vanishes - the process stops without any warning or error
or message. The logs don't mention anything.

The only solution for us is to restart VS, reload the solution, then

Sometimes it happens 5 times in a row, before being able to run the
application, other times 2 or 3 times.
And sometimes it works just fine from the beginning.
We were not able to constantly reproduce the behaviour.
We tried on 3 desktops and a laptop with similar configuration - same
This crashes began once we grew over 22-25 dll projects.

We also tried to uncheck some projects to prevent their rebuilding (projects
we knew we didn't change) but nothing changed.

But once the rebuild completes, if we move the runtime stuff to the
production server (or to any other computer), the application runs fine - no
*************** *************** ****
Has anybody experienced similar things ?
What steps could we take for debugging or trapping the slightest sign of
what's going on ?

Many thanks,

Hi, We are using VS.Net 2003 and coding in VB.net. The solution has 38 projects; most of the projects in the solution reference other projects (without any circular references) and all the references were added to using the Projects tab on the Add Reference dialog and not by browsing to the DLL for the project. When we build or run the solution "bogus" compile errors

I manage our nightly builds for all of our products. Since we have added our .NET assemblies to our nightly build, it has been a learning process. I have come across a couple of situations that I am not sure how to handle without rebuilding or redeploying some of our common assemblies. First let me explain what we do: 1. Version all assemblies with 1.0.0.* 2. All assemblies are strong named 3. We use project references

I'm having a problem with the backend occasionally crashing. I have interfaces with the database in two different applications -- a web viewer using JDBC and an insertion routine written using the c libraries. It makes fairly heavy use of the tsearch protocol. (I haven't been able to figure out anything repetitious, it happens at different times, and after I get a new connection the exact search query or insertion string works fine). ...

I have a fairly large Access application that ran correctly in Access 2000. After upgrading to Access 2003 (and recompiling and updating references), it reliably crashes at a certain point. If I step through the VBA code, the crash does not occur. What is different about stepping through code instead of just running it? Any idea how to find the cause? I know about where it happens, but since it is Access itself crashing, finding a...

I'm having another problem with Visual Studio .NET 2003. This one is related to dependencies. I have two EXEs that are dependent upon a class library. The projects for the class library and both EXEs are all open in the solution I'm building. For some strange reason, whenever I open the solution and click Build Solution, everything compiles fine except for one of the EXEs stating that the class library it depends on is "locked" or is...
