Access denied while trying to a load a Microsoft.Build.Evaluation.Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to load a project using the following code:

    Microsoft.Build.Evaluation.Project project = ProjectCollection.GlobalProjectCollection.LoadProject(path);

    But I get the following exception:

    The project file could not be loaded. Access to the path 'path' is denied. 

    I have verified the path is correct, so I cannot what's going wrong...

    Any thoughts?

    denied.... NTLM issue?

    the path is not granted for you to access? chk with your sys admin

  • Is the path a right path? Can it be found by computer?

  • Hi,

    Please have a try using below code to check whether it denies you to access.

    Microsoft.Build.Evaluation.ProjectCollection collection = new icrosoft.Build.Evaluation.ProjectCollection();
    .DefaultToolsVersion = "4.0";
    .RegisterLogger(new ConsoleLogger());
    Microsoft.Build.Evaluation.Project project = new Microsoft.Build.Evaluation.Project(collection);

    Hope it would give you some help!
