Description Chris Hamons 2017-03-28 16:08:48 UTC
We get:

/Users/donblas/Downloads/AzureTestApp18/AzureTestApp18/CSC: Error CS1703: An assembly `System.ComponentModel.Primitives' with the same identity has already been imported. Consider removing one of the references (CS1703) (AzureTestApp18)
/Users/donblas/Downloads/AzureTestApp18/AzureTestApp18/CSC: Error CS1703: An assembly `System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter' with the same identity has already been imported. Consider removing one of the references (CS1703) (AzureTestApp18)

even under master xbuild.

Alpha/master msbuild seems to work.

If msbuild covered their use case well, this might not be fixed as we are moving towards an msbuild feature.
Comment 2 Chris Hamons 2017-03-28 16:11:35 UTC
Also easy work around:

Open your csproj in a text editor and remove the HintPath for System.ComponentModel.Primitives / System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter
