Projects in two solutions don't handle packages correctly

Nov 7, 2011 at 8:11 PM

We have one solution that is our all-in-one solution that contains all the projects related to our product.  Occasionally, to speed things up we will open a solution that might include a minor accessory product that goes with the main product.  Basically, the point is that project A is in both solution X and solution Y and we might be using either solution at any point of time.

If we add packages to the project while using solution X and then close solution X and open solution Y and select "manage packages" it will say no packages are installed even though the packages.config file correctly shows the packages.

I looked but couldn't find if this is expected behavior or a problem.

Thanks

Ensure that both solution files are right next to each other (in the same folder).
