compiler initialization failed unexpectedly: Project already has a reference to assembly App_Code. A second reference to 'C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files\cs\5f5d3ae7\828f7e4d\assembly\dl3\1af52ae7\ed7e340a_5e5cce01\App_Code.DLL' cannot be added.      


How do I clear this error?      I'm using Visual Studio 2008

I received similar errors when I tried to manually edit some of the configuration files.  The way I resolved the problem was:

1. Make a good backup.
 
2. Do a find looking inside all files for part of the string causing the problem (in this case, ed7e340a_5e5cce01\App_Code.DLL.

3. Manually edit the file to remove all references (not just one).

4. Recompile and re-add any needed references using the normal process.

I'm now getting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" with nothing else when I publish.

The solution Builds      and Rebuilds OK but cannot publish!

Any ideas?

OK, I think we are making progress.  The new error could be from a number of different causes.  The one I would try first is to delete the bin folder and rebuild.

If that doesn't work, please explain details of how you are publishing, are you publish to the local server as a test or to a remote server.  

Make sure you have frequent back-ups so that you can get back to a previous state after trying something that makes it worse.

Hello,

Well backup done, I deleted the Bin Folder and rebuilt the site and as expected 39 errors.

The bin directroy had in it a number of very important dll's used by the site.

What should I do now?

Hello,

Guess what it now publishes, MS Ajax added then gateway control and bingo. I suspect it could have been the gateway DLL, the gateway company has not got back to me yet.

So give it a coupls of days and I will accept your solution.

Thank you so much.
