Problem with Crystal Reports on TFS Build Computer
Posted on 2010-09-14
I am using TFS2010, and have set up to use the Build functionality to build one of my solutions. All seems to be going well, except it is complain as follows":
Inventory\frmRecipes.resx (271): Could not load file or assembly 'file:////DEV2K3/ExternalReferences/CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Line 271, position 5.
I have all my shared assemblies in a network share, and a Reference path parameter set in MSBuild. I know that is working as it finds all the other assemblies there.
I have checked that this file, and all the other Crystal Reports files referenced in my prpgram are also there, so I am guessing it is a dependency that is missing. I have also used depend to see hwt it might be, but it only talks about standard windows files, all of which are on the TFS/build computer.
My fear is I will have to install Crystal Reports on the build computer, but I thought the idea of MSBuild was you only needed th assemblies, not the full installations?
Has anyone else had experience of using MSBuild with Crystal Reports 2008?
