In section 7.4 of your book you discuss the creation of the C# WPF DLL and then the mixed-mode MFC extension C++ DLL. When I do the same, everything works great, builds fine, etc. initially.

But if I copy the code to another machine, I find I need to recreate the project reference between the C++ project and the C# project. Initially when I open the C++ project, the C# project reference is invalid. If I remove the C# project reference and recreate it, everything is fine from then on, even if I do a project clean and full rebuild.

Do you know why the project reference goes bad? Is there something I can do to avoid it? I've looked inside the project files and the reference is a relative path and valid. I'm not doing anything special in the project properties.

Re: Project reference between C++ and C# projects failing
Normally, if you click on the reference name in Solution Explorer, Visual Studio should resolve the reference in about a second or two. But it does initially show it as a broken reference - even with SP1.
