Link solutions

Post by monkey2012 » Wed May 27, 2015 5:40 pm

Hi,

I have 2 solutions Alpha.rxsln and Beta.rxsln, is it possible to setup a link so that Beta.rxsln can share the code modules, repository items, etc. from Alpha.rxsln?

Thanks

Absolutely, but it won't be the solution, it will be the individual projects inside the Alpha solution that you need to add to each Beta project you want to use them in. Solutions are just groups of related projects and projects are what actually get built into binary modules.

You need to add the desired projects from Alpha as references inside Beta's projects. Right-click the "References" tree item in the desired Beta project's view and select Add Reference. In the window that pops up (it may take a bit, be patient) click the ".NET Assembly Browser" tab, and then click the "Browse" button. Navigate to the Alpha project's binary file (dll or exe) and select it.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
