Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13872) Can't build project with VS17 (15.5)
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2018 19:55:00 GMT


Jan Piotrowski (Sujan) commented on CB-13872:

To investigate: 
Why do I have MSBuild tools at to different locations? 
Can I uninstall some package to get rid of the broken one?
How do we have to fix the code to make this work properly?

> If you just install VS2017 and the VS Build Tools (that include MSBuild) you can not
build a project with current cordova-windows master, but get an error message like this.

error MSB4226: The imported project "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Bui
was not found. Also, tried to find "Microsoft\VisualStudio\v15.0\JavaScript\Microsoft .VisualStudio.WJProject.Default.props"
in the fallback search path(s) for $(MSBuildExtensionsPath) - "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild"
. These search paths are defined in "C:\Program Files ( x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\MSBuild\15.0\bin\MSBuild.exe.Config".
Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists
on disk in one of t he search paths.
> {code}
> There is no folder `JavaScript` in `C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Bui
ldTools\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v15.0`, so there can be no file.
> This folder seems to be chosen because of the MSBuild tools that are running the build.
