"Cannot reference updated manifest"

More than 2/3 of the time I get.

"Cannot reference updated manifest"

This is apparently because the the debugger WILL NOT quit when we want to go back and edit source code.

 

This is a minor annoyance, but since it annoys so many of us, one would think they would want to fix that issue.

One easy fix is to put a random number at the end of the executable,

that way we arent trying to reference an executable the debugger is attached to.

This was a longstanding bug in Visual Studio, one that affected all languages. I have not seen it in VS2017. There have been several threads on this here - a simple solution is to exit VS and restart.
