Assembly linker AL.exe error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      Need help with the below error

    Error 1 Task could not find "AL.exe" using the SdkToolsPath "" or the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A\WinSDK-NetFx40Tools-x86". Make sure the SdkToolsPath is set and the tool exists in the correct processor specific location under the SdkToolsPath and that the Microsoft Windows SDK is installed

    Not sure what is causing the issue. Appreciate help with this issue.

    >>Task could not find "AL.exe" using the SdkToolsPath "" or the registry key ...

    You don't have to reinstall the .NET Framework, but the Windows 10 SDK, which include the tools you want. (the file usually can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v10.0A\bin\NETFX 4.6 Tools)

    As a general guideline: the .NET Framework you are building for and the .NET Frameworks installed on your PC don't relate to each other. You can build for .NET 4.5 with .NET 4.6 installed.

    Refer: Error - could not find al.exe using sdkToolsPath [duplicate].
