GSF Development Environment, Wix.CA.targets Not Found


#1

Hi,

I am working through an exercise to setup a virtual machine for GSF Development. I hit a slight snag.

Step 11 in Open GridSolutionsFramework generates a “C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\WiX\v3.x\Wix.CA.targets” was not found. error in the Output log.

The following is the exact text in the log:

C:\GPA\forks\gsf_fork\Source\Libraries\GSF.InstallerActions\GSF.InstallerActions.csproj : error 
The imported project "C:\Program Files (x86) \MSBuild\Microsoft\WiX\v3.x\Wix.CA.targets" was not found. 
Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk. 
C:\GPA\forks\gsf_fork\Source\Libraries\GSF.InstallerActions\GSF.InstallerActions.csproj`

Any help or guidance in the right direction is appreciated.

Thanks, //aj

Resolved by downloading and installing the latest WiX Toolset Release

The completed exercise for setting up a Windows 10 machine with Visual Studio Community Edition for building GridSolutionsFramework from source code is documented here. All initial errors and warnings and build error are resolved.

Feedback and comments for the exercise are appreciated.

Thanks!
