Two suggestions.

Firstly, are you executing or devenv.exe ? When I have needed to use 
the last resort of executing VS directly, using has been far more 
reliable than devenv.exe.

Secondly, have you considered using MSBuild? Unless you’re doing something not 
supported by MSBuild (like a .vdproj msi deployment project), MSBuild can be a 
more reliable choice.

Hope this helps,

Hello All,


We are facing issue with building VS2010 from NAnt. Below are the details:


·         We migrated our project from Visual studio 2005 to Visual studio 2010.

·         Post migration, we are seeing build issue in the build server 
machine. Details are below.

·         Win 7 Professional SP1 versioned OS build machine is setup with 
Cruise control and NAnt script for automated builds with devenv.

·         Building with VS 2010 causes a number of projects to start but do not 

The only message appears in the log ( which is generated by /log switch of 
devenv command) is :

----Rebuild All started:Project:DWRAPPER, Configuration:BuildWithPortalSVC Win 

----Rebuild All started:Project:XYZ, Configuration:BuildWithPortalSVC Win 32---

·         Count of project failure like above is not the same for every build.

·         Building the project(solution file) in IDE is fine and also from the 
Command line with devenv.

·         Here is the command in Nant.

 <exec program="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 
10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv" verbose = "true">
               <arg line="${SolutionFile} /rebuild BuildTwinWithPortalSvc /out 

We are stuck here now. there is no other error message that helps to find out 
what is happening during build of VS 2010 with NAnt. Why is the build failing 
with the above error message?

I am using NAnt 0.92. Also tried with nant-0.91-alpha2. Same results.

Seems in Win XP machine the issue is not seen.


Should I attached log file in the mail? Please let me know.

Kind regards,

Bhavani Kapparmath.
