Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools' Add Reference Dialog should display a check box to indicate if the new reference is version specific
Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools' Add Reference Dialog should display a check box to indicate if the new reference is version specific.
I would personally like to see this checkbox unchecked by default, but this is different than the default behavior of Visual Studio as it seems that the default value of SpecificVersion is true (when it is not defined for a reference in the project file). But if that is not practical, then a global setting to determine the default value of the checkbox would suffice.
I've run into automated build issues where builds would fail because of this setting. In these cases, the version number of the referenced dll on my local system is different that what is on the build server. Having a different versioned dll between local development systems and the build server can be common where the dll is re-built at different times (local vs build server) and its version number is automatically incremented for example.
