[dba-VB] Compiling Class Library

Hi Richard

OK, that makes sense. But how?
If I open Add Reference I have tabs:

   .NET, COM, Projects, Browse, Recent

However, tab Projects is empty.

Now, I can add the Class Library as a project, and that causes the main project to be wrapped in a Solution given the name of the main project.
Then, if I open Add Reference for either project (main or library), the other project is listed as a reference.
Is this what I should do?

If you add the reference of the class library as type 'project' then you
don't need two VS2005 sessions and can edit the class library within the
main app.

Hi all

In VS2005 I have a project with a reference to Class Library.

When I have both opened in two sessions of VS and editing both, I've
found that I have to run Debug (F5) in the Class Library to have changes
reflected at once in the main project.
That's fine, but when I do so, the Class Library pops an error message
that - of course - a "Class Library cannot be started directly".

How can I get rid of this error message? Or am I doing this in an
unauthorized way?
