Linking Settings files

Feb 15, 2013 at 8:24 AM
Hi,

I have two settings files in my project. One lies next to the Visual Studio solution file. The other one is in an subfolder which is used for export to other products we develop.
  • ...
  • solution.sln
  • settings.stylecop (linked to the other settings file)
  • Export (folder)
    • settings.stylecop (<= used for export, no merging)
    • stylecop.targets
    • stylecop.dll
    • etc...
When I link the sln settings file to the one in the export folder StyleCop has all rules activated. It seems that the linking is ignored. But when I open the sln settings file in the editor it seems that the setting are inherited.

What have I made wrong? Now I have to manually ensure that both files are always identical.
