Stupid Question 256-257: What is differential debugging, and how do I compare files in PowerShell?

Visual Studio error: CleanWPPAllFilesInSingleFolder evaluates to "" instead of a boolean

Had this fine problem today, here is how I was able to solve it. Of course this seems to be more of a ‘fix’ than a permanent solution, but maybe I can help a few more devs 🙂 I’m currently using VS2013 Preview (updating to RTM next week), but this error exists in VS2012 as […]
