WiX 3.6 Beta Behavior When Building

Just noticed an interesting behavior of a solution that contains about 20 projects and one WiX project. It would fail when using “Rebuild All” with some strange error in a wxs-file that compiled fine previously. When using “Rebuild” on the WiX project it would build just fine. This was reproducible at that point.

To resolve it I restarted Visual Studio and all was fine again. I couldn’t reproduce the issue. I guess that it was some add-in that got a pointer or reference mixed-up.

My setup is: Visual Studio 2010 Professional, ReSharper, dotCover, AnkhSVN, WiX 3.6 beta.
