Consider the following scenario. You open a solution in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. The solution contains two projects that are named Project A and Project B. Project A contains a reference to a file that Project B generates during the build process. The project build order for the solution builds Project A before Project B. You rebuild the solution by clicking Rebuild Solution on the Build menu. In this scenario, a warning symbol appears in Solution Explorer. The warning symbol appears under Project A next to the reference to the file that Project B generates.
Note The warning symbol is a yellow triangle that contains a black exclamation point (!).
