I just ran into a file-encoding-issue which caused me several hours to figure out.
Therefore it would be nice if there was a list with known pitfalls and their solutions.
In this case it would be like so:
"tsc.exe" exited with error code 1.
- check file-encoding is UTF-8 - https://typescript.codeplex.com/workitem/1587
Or another example:
external module XYZ cannot be resolved
- check if module path is case-sensitive - https://typescript.codeplex.com/workitem/2134
