I’ve recently came accross a surprisingly painful task which were about removing a warning.
One of them were the famous “MSB3247: Found conflicts between different version of same dependent assembly”.
After hours of manual troubleshooting I finally created a command line tool called dep.exe to dump the nested dependencies of every assemblies inside a directory to easily
- Know which assemblies are referenced (directly or indirectly) with more than one version
- Understand the dependency chain which pulled those assemblies in your bin folder
Everything is explained on the README of dep.exe.
If you happen to have any question or suggestions, just post them in the comment section.
