Solution Project Dependencies

I have a VS2003 solution with 4 projects in it. I am trying to set up the
dependencies in the dialog box, but after I close the dialog the dependencies
do not change. Is there something that I am missing that keeps resetting the
dependencies wrongly.

Thanks,
Bruce

Bruce,

Can you give a more detaile dexample, please? Perhaps name the 4 projects,
the type, and which depends on which. Also, are they all set to build when
you build the solution?

CT,
The projects are as follows:
Project A - Static Lib
Project B - Static Lib
Project C - Static Lib
Project D - Exe

B depends on A
C depends on B
D depends on C

They are all set to build when the solution is built, and they do build.
Just not in the order that I have selected in the dependency dialog. When I
re-open the dialog it shows:
D depends on B
C depends on B

Thanks,
Bruce

After you set them correctly, what does the Build Order tab of the Project
Dependencies dialog box show, are the projects listed correctly?
