comment Is there a free solution for watching a folder for changes and copying specific files on change?
I'm not sure how local debugging and source control limit your options to reference outside the bin. Just use a network share. I think you will be better off using technology that is built for the purpose rather than trying to find a tool that is an exact match for all your different needs. That or if you really can't use any of the items I listed, hook into FileSystemWatcher...I wrote console applications that use it in a matter of hours.

"shared component need to be copied to multiple other project locations on disk" If they run on the same physical machine, have you considered the GAC? The copy functionality already exists as a class you can plug into with .NET (FileSystemWatcher). Continuous Integration can also be used. You can also reference an assembly outside the bin. In which case your programs can share a single reference point. stackoverflow.com/questions/2529459/…

comment copy worksheet to several workbook
@Amra - What is the issue? Does 'New Workplan' exist in the new workbook? If not, can you just update the name to whatever it is supposed to be?

comment copy worksheet to several workbook
@Amra - #1 have you tried inserting dollar signs? #2 The Sum works fine in a new worksheet. So there must be something wrong with the specific worksheet. It sounds like you have several more questions. Instead of appending to this question and trying to gather enough detail and then answer them in all comments I recommend you wrap this question up and create new questions.

comment How to run an application with administrator rights all the time?
I'd suggest you listen to what the OS is telling you. Unless you can somehow de-integrate the software or somehow it has triggered a false positive, then you can't. The only other thing you can do is disable UAC.

comment Cannot access one specific site on two computers
Have your roomates try to ping the website IP address too. Not all sites allow ICMP echo. So, PING failure could mean nothing at all. Let us know.

comment External HDD connecting via USB disconnects wireless LAN connection
You should not depend on windows to auto-update drivers. Instead, check the manufacturer's website. As far as the external device requiring drivers, once again I recommend you check the manufacturer's website for driver downloads or call support and ask. Avoid assumptions.

comment Wireless Connectivity - works fine on one router, but not the other
Do both routers have the same firmware version? Are you losing the actual signal connection to the router or just losing internet connectivity?

What OS? Have you tried updating the device drivers for both the wireless NIC and the add-on unit?
