SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, you create a Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 application that has batch compilation disabled. The ASP.NET 2.0 application contains at least one error in an .aspx file or in a code-behind file. You build the ASP.NET 2.0 application, and compilation errors appear in the Output window. In this scenario, when you build the ASP.NET 2.0 application again, compilation errors do not appear in the Output window. Additionally, compilation errors do not appear in the Output window for subsequent builds.
