Hello Experts,
I have a very old web application (A) which is full of Helps related to another website.  In the other website (B) a link is provided called Help.  On a click on the link, it should go the Help website (A).  Both the websites defined under one solution.  When I try to compile, I am getting the error as below.

Error 1
The OutputPath property is not set for project 'xxx.csproj'.  Please check to make sure that you have specified a valid combination of Configuration and Platform for this project.  Configuration='Release'  Platform='AnyCPU'.  This error may also appear if some other project is trying to follow a project-to-project reference to this project, this project has been unloaded or is not included in the solution, and the referencing project does not build using the same or an equivalent Configuration or Platform.

When the above failed, I tried to compile the Help website (A) separately, I received the following error.  Any idea what is going on?  I know it is bit difficult explain.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you in advance.

Error 2
Server Error in '/Helper' Application.
