Building Solution Vs2010 SP1

May 7, 2011 at 2:05 AM

Everytime I try to build the solution I get the following error:

Error    1    The command "
if not exist "D:\inetpub\Projects\silk\MileageStats\MileageStats.Data.SqlCe.Tests\bin\Debug\x86" md "D:\inetpub\Projects\silk\MileageStats\MileageStats.Data.SqlCe.Tests\bin\Debug\x86"

The SqlCE Tests execute fine and all tests passed.

Anybody else come across this.

We are looking into this, will respond on Monday.  We have not seen this before.

Sorry you are having difficulty.

Is it possible that VS does not have permission to create the directory in D:\inetpub\ ?

You can try either [a] running VS as an administrator or [b] compiling the solution in a different directory.

Let me know if this helps,

same problem here: 

SqlServerCompact.4.0.8482.1 does not exist on packages.
I had to add it via nuget

I had the same errors occur trying to build until I remembered to actually open the readme and then ran the NuGet script.
After running the included script everything built and ran fine.  Hope that helps.
