I'm getting two errors when I try to build the Wix project that vdproj to wix created. This is probably something wrong in the vdproj, but I'm not seeing it, and was hoping you might be able to help. I have the most recent stable build of Wix (3.8),

Build error during harvesting: c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Microsoft.Common.targets(609,5): The OutputPath property is not set for project 'IPPBX_Sys_UI.csproj'. Please check to make sure that you have specified a valid combination of Configuration and Platform for this project. Configuration='Debug' Platform='MCD'. You may be seeing this message because you are trying to build a project without a solution file, and have specified a non-default Configuration or Platform that doesn't exist for this project.

heat.exe

Project: eConnSetup_wix


The command ""C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.8\Bin\heat.exe" project "C:\Projects\eConnGUI\IPPBX_Sys_UI\IPPBX_Sys_UI.csproj" -projectname "IPPBX_Sys_UI" -pog Binaries -gg -sfrag -nologo -out "obj\\Debug\Harvested XML\_IPPBX_Sys_UI.xml"" exited with code 5307.

Thanks!

Hi Alan,

Please open the 'Configuration Manager' dialog of the solution and set the correct configuration for the WiX project, e.g. Debug|x86 or Release|x86.

Thanks Sergey, I've done that, but get the same errors. I'm pursuing this on the WiX mailing list, and will repost here when I have an answer.

Hi Alan,

Please send me the .wixproj file on the support e-mail. I will check it.
