Specflow issue in Visual Studio 2017 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Whenever I am creating a new feature file in my project in Visula Studio 2017-I get the below error

    Custom tool error: Generation error: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Build.Framework, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. 

    I even tried downgrading the specflow version from 2.2 to 2.1

    Clearing the temp files and restarting Visual Studio

    Deleting and adding all the feature files after the restart.This is hindering my work to great extent.Please assist.
