This is driving me to the point of tears (metaphorically speaking lol)..
I'm using msbuild to build and deploy some web applications (.net 3.5+). What is odd is that i'm getting this error on shared projects but not in all solutions that use them. For example solution A includes shared project PaymentProviders.csproj and will build fine. However solution B includes the same shared project and i get an error...
"Error] C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Microsoft.Common.targets(483, 9): The OutputPath property is not set for project 'PaymentProviders.csproj'. Please check to make sure that you have specified a valid combination of Configuration and Platform for this project. Configuration='Prelive' Platform='AnyCPU'. You may be seeing this message because you are trying to build a project without a solution file, and have specified a non-default Configuration or Platform that doesn't exist for this project."
Any ideas are appreciated.
