Visual Studio 2005 Error - ' A problem occurred while trying to set the “References” parameter for the IDE's in-process compiler. No metadata found' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I get the following error while trying to build an a application done n C#. Any help appreciated.

    A problem occurred while trying to set the "References" parameter for the IDE's in-process compiler. No metadata was found.

     

    This was a working project but after I reinstalled my Windows and Visual Studio when I try to build the project this is the error I'm encountering.

    Arun

  • Problem Solved. Upon closer inspection found the error MSB3021. Accidentally an app.config file had been added to the .csproj file. But since no error was there this error was being thrown out. Removing that from solution explorer fixed it.
