  • I had the same problem. There is an error in the PartnerPortal.Plugins.csproj

    To fix it in Visual Studio right click on the PartnerPortal.Plugins (unavailable) and select Edit PartnerPortal.Plugins

    Find line 57 - it will looks like this:

     </ItemGroup  <Import Project="$(MSBuildToolsPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" />

    After "</ItemGroup" add a ">" to the end and then hit return to move the rest of the "<Import Project..." to the next line. It should look like this when fixed:


    <Import Project="$(MSBuildToolsPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" />

    Now save it. Then right click on the PartnerPortal.Plugins (unavailable) again and select Reload Project. It should now load and work.

    Hope this helps!
