ERROR: Unable to build project output group 'Content Files from Adt.Kaon.Web (Active)'

    Question

  • Hi,

       My project is built using WCF, and i have to create installer of this project. I Have followed steps in some articles as :

    1)Add WebSetUp project.
    2)Add "project output" and "contentfiles" from Adt.Kaon.Web to WebSetUp project.
    3)Move "Project output" file to bin folder.
    4)build.

    Throwed an error when building WebSetUp project as shown:

    * Building file 'E:\BackUp before installer\WebSetup1\Debug\WebSetup1.msi'...
    ERROR: Unable to build project output group 'Content Files from Adt.Kaon.Web (Active)'
    Build process cancelled
    ========== Build: 7 succeeded or up-to-date, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========


       Can any one look into this issue which will be helpful to me.

    Thanks.

  • We see this error when we try to build the Setup project.

    This happens when the setup project is unable to find a missing Content File.

    Ofcourse you can expand /show all files on the web project to see all the missing files, but I find that tedious.

    One of the tricks that I use is to publish the web project locally thats when you see the error quoting the exact Content file thats missing.
