The problem :
If you are working on some ASP.NET project and you need to build it even if some files are unbuildable/will not compile (currently I apply this on TypeScript files but this solution is general) , because you for example need to change some other functionality and than continue with TypeScript work than you have a problem. VS stops building the app and you will have only Yellow Screen Of The Death note with “Parser Error” and “Could not load type – your project name” which I suppose is caused by not generating the assembly.
So, the solutions are (among others) :
- Exclude erroneous .ts file (which will make it not compile),
- Say to build system to not compile particular file with something different.
The solution :
It really is simple : just set Build Action from TypeScriptCompile to None and you are done.
The strange thing is, that my Visual Studio 2013 will anyway say I have errors, but the build process is not stopped and I am able to run the app.
If you have any other solutions than feel free to post them in the comments. Thanks in advance.
