    I created my DAL on another webproject, and decided to use the DAL in a second as well.

    • So I opened the new site in VS2008, and added a reference to the DAL (to the first websites bin dir)
    • Open-Access Enable-Project
    • ...and it doesn't see the connection

    Now if I link the project to the solution and add the reference to that, I get the connection fine

    Bug?  Or intended?

    Hi Steve,

    This is the expected behavior. When enabling web sites we are showing the active connections from the Server Explorer and the connection strings found in the projects in the current solution. We are not looking into the compiled dlls as this would always require to build the solution before enabling the web site.
