Errors from MSBuild


I've installed the source as an example of the WebAPI and Knockout frameworks in action. To get rid of the squiggly underlines under the dnneurope.portalgroups namespace I tried to build the project (in Release mode). The issue with MSBuild is that this project uses http://dnntcmsbuild.codeplex.com/. After I figured that out and installed it I then got an error on the "CreateFile" task. After some searching I deduced that "CreateFile" was in an older version and I installed the latest which now has a task called "CreateDnnFile". I changed the reference in the Project.targets file and the error I get now is 'The "CreateDnnFile' task was not given a value for the required parameter "Version".'

I'm not real familiar with using MSBuild. Most of my use is with what others have already set up in the templates I'm using. The latest version of MSBuildDNNtcTasks seems to be a significant rewrite. (Quite impressive in fact.) Any thoughts on changes to this project to get it to build with v2 of MSBuildDNNtcTasks.

I am experiencing the same issues; have you found a solution?

No. I'd like to make better use of build automation and MSBuildDNNtcTasks looks very useful for packaging up DNN Modules but just haven't had the time to get into it.
