Sandcastle in TeamCity with additional content only fails

Feb 3, 2012 at 3:06 PM


I have been trying to get a documentation project to run, but to no avail.

<error>SHFB error BE0042: You must specify at least one documentation source in the form of an assembly or a Visual Studio solution/project file</error>

The project compiles from VS2010 with not problems reported.

I am running the newest SHFB on .NET 4.0 with a project set to build on MSBuild with .NET 4.0


Does anyone have an idea why the loaded plug-in "additional content only" seems to be ignored in TeamCity?


Thank you

Are you sure the Team City project is using the SHFB project you expect?  If the plug-in is in the project, it will get used.  Do you see any output from it earlier in the log file?  You should see a message from the plug-in stating that it will only include conceptual content.  If not, the plug-in is not there.
