The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

I had this happen the other day.
Notice that it mentions csc.exe (csharp compiler)?

Well, I built my ASP.NET MVC 5 based web site using Community 2015 the other day and somehow some setting got set in the web.config and I got the same problem.
Something happened where the web.config had a setting to use the new Roslyn compiler and my web site blew up just like this.
Only after a while of digging through the web.config did I find the annoying setting in there related to the new compiler which caused the error.

I blame Visual Studio!!! Big Grin | :-D
