MSI Installation Incomplete, MSBuild Task warning while compiling, “Microsoft.Build.Tasks.GenerateResource” trying to use CLR2

20 Mar


You are trying to build a setup project (msi) within Visual Studio, build runs fine, but when trying to deploy the package, the installation fails with unknown fatal error.


You’ve installed Visual Studio 11 Preview, or Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.
This, as seems as MS bug, overwritten MSBuild’s configuration.


Removing Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5 & Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0, and re installing Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0 will solve the problem.
