CircleCI and AddinExpress

Hi Team,
I am trying to set up CircleCI to perform a continuous build of our AddinExpress based Outlook Addin. I am using msbuild as part of the CircleCI configuration and during the build I am receiving the following message:

Primary reference "AddinExpress.OL.2005".
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(2106,5): warning MSB3245: Could not resolve this reference. Could not locate the assembly "AddinExpress.OL.2005". Check to make sure the assembly exists on disk. If this reference is required by your code, you may get compilation errors. [C:\Users\circleci\project\CrmsOutlookAddin\CrmsOutlookAddin.csproj]
For SearchPath "{CandidateAssemblyFiles}".
Considered "Loader\adxloader.dll",
but its name "adxloader"
didn't match the expected name "AddinExpress.OL.2005".
Considered "Loader\adxloader64.dll",
but its name "adxloader64"
didn't match the expected name "AddinExpress.OL.2005".

As CircleCI is building a new VM from scratch each time, I obviously need to install the AddIn Express DLL's on it for the build each time.

Do you have any suggestions on the best way to achieve this?

Hello David,

I don't know about CircleCI. I suggest that you put Add-in Express assemblies used by your add-in in a location where they are available for the project.
