could not find ildasm.exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to export my functions from DLL. I'm using nuget library "Unmanaged Exports" version 1.2.7. I'm able to build my dll successfully but I don't know why I am getting an error "Visual studio Location \packages\UnmanagedExports.1.2.7\tools\RGiesecke.DllExport.targets(58,3): error : Microsoft.Build.Utilities.ToolLocationHelper could not find ildasm.exe". Anybody knows what is wrong? I even searched this EXE file in my C: drive but couldn't find it. What could be the solution for this?

            public static void start()
                Console.WriteLine("Hello World");

  • Hi Rajat Kinkhabwala,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, the ildasm.exe is installed automatically with Visual Studio. To run the tool, use the Developer Command Prompt (or the Visual Studio Command Prompt in Windows 7).

    At the command prompt, type the commang in the following MSDN document.

    If you could not run this exe, maybe there is something wrong with the installation of your visual studio. Please repair it in control panel> Process and feature> right lick the Visual Studio>Click change.

    Best Regards,
