Wix And TFS MSBuild RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi All,


    I have a team project which contains 1 windows application project 2. webapplication project 3. Class liberary preoject and have my TfsBuild.proj build type ready and working fine. it builds successfully.


    I want to include Wix project in my Team Project which can create a MSI Package after Above Build is Succesfull.

    when i add a simple wix project in my solution which includes other projects too. it gives me an error MSBuild does not support this type or project file to build. and fails after this error, This happenps if i run MY Build on my build server.

    But other wise if i Build a solution on my machine everything seems to build fine.  including Wix project.

    Any ideas why and wht i need to do in order to build this project on my build machine.?


    Second secondly i also want my wix project to include the files from other projects too. I dont know a way how can you mention a path to a source attribute in <file> element to it picks up the files from current project not hard coded like c:\test\file.extention this way it wont be dynamic.


    As i want make an MSI files including the all project files , If anybody knows any example available online or any guide how to make Wix project using MSbuild In TFS 2005 or 2008. please let me know

    Waiting for responce.
