Issue ID




Visual C# Compiler cannot find source files because it is looking at old file locations

Asset - Database


To reproduce:

1. Open attached project.
2. Run test: Tests -> MoveFilesAround
3. Inspect console.

Microsoft (R) Visual C# Compiler version (9d34608e)
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
error CS2001: Source file 'C:\unity2\Tests\EditModeAndPlayModeTests\DirectoryMonitoring\Assets\gen\dir0\subdir0\Script_uEZKsjlVfPkSawq.cs' could not be found.

Refreshing fixes the issue for now.
But we plan to optimize refresh to not refresh non modified files, in that case, compilation error will not go away until I modify a script and force compilation that way.

This happens in a very specific scenario where refresh is called multiple times with some changes in between them. Test stops after last refresh, and then compilation fails
