I've converted a rather large VB.Net project to C# in Visual Studio 2013. The only error left is in my macro in my post build. The post-build command line is:

copy "$(ProjectDir)MSI\ReadMe.rtf" "$(TargetDir)"
copy "$(ProjectDir)MSI\rtfEULA.rtf" "$(TargetDir)"

I get the error:

Error      1      The command "copy "MSI\ReadMe.rtf" ""
copy "MSI\rtfEULA.rtf" """ exited with code 1.      PMTools

If you notice the $(ProjectDir) and the $(TargetDir) appear to be missing the variables. I have opened up the edit post-build and clicked on the Macro... button to list the available macros values. Both macros have the proper value in them. So somewhere they are going blank during the build of the project?
