Every .NET developer has ftp'd new DLLs and a bunch of .ASPX files to add a new feature on a production site, maybe a feature that was several days or longer in development. The time finally arrives to ftp the changes (usually late at night for me), and test. What is usually a satisfying experience of validating everything works as planned turned into an “update freakout” for me last night when I loaded a new page and saw:
Compile Error: CS0016: Unable to write to 'c:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files\whatever\ce1a8be4\7a60b407\nd3m-sk_.dll' -- 'Could not execute CVTRES.EXE.'
[no relevent lines]
I uploaded a DLL in my development \bin which was not any part of the update and had the same timestamp as the DLL on production. The new page then loaded successfully. Maybe someone can tell me what happened? Or not. Just a curiousity mainly, particularly since I haven't encountered this compile error before.
