There are times when a team has to generate a Web service proxy, and then compile the proxy along with the application. So will WSDL commands be supported.

Try using the latest nightly build. I also had this error and I'm using visual Studio 2008. The nightly build worked fine.

# re: MSBuild Community Tasks Project releases new version

Solution for error: "Failed to open XML file , system error:"

Had the same problem, so I checked out the source.

The installer expects to find a file called Microsoft.Build.xsd in the directory "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Xml\Schemas\1033"

1033 should be the language code of US Eng.

But, as I am from Germany, I only have a folder "...\1031"

I compiled the setup project again and it works.

But it should be sufficient to rename the folder [yor languagecode] to 1033, run the setup, and rename it back to the original value.

# re: MSBuild Community Tasks Project releases new version

Hi

Can anybody help me regarding the "ExecuteDDL"

by providing some example or description how to implement it?

# re: MSBuild Community Tasks Project releases new version

I still have the same issue after over 3 yaers nothing was changed to solve this.

The issue is that on some XP systems i.e. german version you cant't install the MSBuild Community Tasks.  Support Querstion in Forum would not be answered.

Error message is:

Error 25531. Failed to open XML file , system error: -2147024786

I hear it is a very good tool, but support or fix management gets a bad note from me.
