if you're using MSBuild, check this link:
Compiler Error CS0006

Error Message
Metadata file 'dll_name' could not be found

The program was compiled and explicitly passed the name of a file that contained metadata; however, the .dll was not found.

"Whenever" should mean you either doing something extremely weird, otherwise your Visual Studio is heavily damaged. In all cases, your information is not enough...
