    I get an error when trying to check in appbuilder project to Team services

    D:\ThatsVS\Wwoofers\xxxxxx\WebApp\WebApp.iceproj (390): The imported project "D:\ThatsVS\Wwoofers\xxxxx\WebApp\Build.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.

    The offending line

      <Import Project="$(IceniumTargets)Build.targets" />

    Any help thanks

    Hello Alan,

    This is strange and not expected behavior of our product. In order to investigate why it is happening on your side, we will require some more details:
    • Please, share your exact workflow for checking in the AppBuilder project.
    • What source control is being used? TFS?
    • Is there any build step upon checking in files in your source control?

    Further, the $(IceniumTargets), represents the following folder on your system: %localappdata%/Microsoft/VisualStudio/<VSVERSION>/Extensions/<APPBUILDER>/Targets. As a workaround, you can get the Build.targets file from there and add it to your project's folder. Then, changing the <Import Project="<NEW DESTINATION>"> should solve the matter. However, as this is not recommended and the issue should not be present in the first place, I am looking forward to your reply with the above mentioned details.

    sorry my question was a bit misleading. I get the error on the build using TFS after check in. the build fails with the error.
    The project builds fine in Visuals Studio, but not in TFS
    Thanks

    Hi Alan,

    Unfortunately, at this stage AppBuilder projects cannot be built in TFS. This is so, due to many reasons. For example, you cannot log in to our system within TFS and there is no way to start a cloud build. This said, I will recommend you to disable the automatic builds, after check ins on your side. This will allow you to at least use TFS as a repository, where the sources of your applications are stored.

    Further, we are currently thinking of a way to allow AppBuilder projects for continues integration, so your feedback is greatly appreciated. Please, let us know if you want to share more about what exactly you want to achieve and which approach will suit you most. You can also use our Ideas and Feedback portal for that purpose.
