I am running windows 10 and comodo firewall 10. I also use MS Visual studio community edition to create some computerprogram. When i compile the program, a .dll file is copied from the output directory of the project to another folder. Autocontainment interferes with this process, resulting in inconsistent behaviour in explorer.
Steps to reproduce:
-open visual studio
create a new project of type Class library
add the following lines to "project - projectname properties - Build events - Post event command line:
start copy /y “$(TargetPath)” “D:\Somefolder\Library”
start explorer “D:\SomeFolder\Library”
build the project.
Expected behaviour: There should be a copy of the project .DLL file in the folder “D:\Somefolder\Library”
- In the explorer windowe opened by visual studio (line 2 post build action), i can see the .DLL file.
- In an explorer window which i open from the taskbar, i can open the same folder and NOT see the .DLL file.
I have veryfied that disabling auto-containment stops this inconsistency, turning it back on brings it back.
I have added the folder to the exceptions in Comodo firewall, which has worked arouind the problem. I’m still filing this as a bug because it means that under some circumstances autocontainment can cause a file to be hidden from regular view.
