In this post we will be discussing one more common question people ask regarding Portable Class Library projects. This is about how to find out the list of assemblies referenced by the project. The question is raised because the references section is displayed as follows:

Object Browser

Class View
We can also see the referenced assemblies in the class explorer. This is also available in View Menu [View -> Class View].

Profile Folder
One of the option is to directly go to the folder for the specific profile and see the assemblies in the folder. The profile information can be found in the solution explorer as follows:

And here are the available assemblies for the profile.
