digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 16619] New: Visual D: link dependency file does not exist -


          Issue ID: 16619
           Summary: Visual D: link dependency file does not exist - always
                    prompted to rebuild
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P1
         Component: visuald
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: ben.stembridge gmail.com

Regardless of whether files have changed im always forced to rebuild.

example output:
Building Win32\Debug\ConsoleApp1.exe...
Win32\Debug\ConsoleApp1.exe not up to date: link dependency file
b:\ConsoleApp1\Win32\Debug\ConsoleApp1.lnkdep does not exist

Notice that the link file is named .lnkdep and it does not exist in the project
directory. But there is a .dep file in the folder. Could the tool be looking
for the wrong extension?

It seems this issue was reported before and was listed as fixed in
http://forum.dlang.org/post/iegvtqgnnacnknzlzule forum.dlang.org

I had originally started with 0.3.43 and also tried 0.3.44.
This is win7 64bit with VS 2005, Im not sure if its because of the old version
of VS but everything else seems to work ok.
