Building .vdproj files / Setup Projects with TeamCity

Good afternoon,

one of our Visual Studio 2008 / .sln files contains a standard setup project (.vdproj file) and the Teamcity configuration has 'sln2008' as build runner configured. However, the setup/.vdproj one is not built with the following error message:

[Project "T5.sln" (Rebuild target(s)):] D:\TeamCity\BuildAgents\1\work\a4cd8b425944b5a7\T5.sln warning MSB4078: The project file "T5.Installation\T5.Installation.vdproj" is not supported by MSBuild and cannot be built.

Is there any way to build these setup projects with Teamcity?


Cheers and thanks,
-J

We are doing it by getting TeamCity to run a FinaBuilder script that runs VS2008 to compile the vdproj file. The problem is that vdproj files cannot be built by msbuild, as they are not in the correct format.

Hope that helps.

Hello there,

thanks that helped a little, yes I am using a wrapper msbuild file that exec's 'devenv.exe /build' now.. and it somewhat works.
