Compiling on VS2008 and Windows 7

Jun 28, 2011 at 12:55 PM

When trying to build using VS2008 and Windows 7 I ran into a couple of erros. Here's what they were and how I resolved them.


Error 1 Metadata file 'C:\CodePlex\ssisUnit\SsisUnitDesign\bin\Debug\SsisUnit2008.Design.dll' could not be found ssisUnitTestRunnerUI_SQL2008

Error 2 The command ""C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin\gacutil.exe" -u SsisUnit2008.Design.dll" exited with code 3. C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Microsoft.Common.targets 895 9 SsisUnit.Design_SQL2008


Modify the Project Properties of SsisUnit.Design_SQL2008. On the Build Events page I changed the path from: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin\gacutil.exe" to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.1\Bin\gacutil.exe".

Also, there are a lot of references to file paths C:\Projects\... throughout the solution. I saved my solution to C:\CodePlex so those all needed changing too.
