C++ project builds are failing with error MSB4014: The build stopped unexpectedly because of an internal failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently our VS1010 solutions are failing with error MSB4014: The build stopped unexpectedly because of an internal failure.

    error MSB4014: The build stopped unexpectedly because of an internal failure.
    intspt.vcxproj : error MSB4014: Microsoft.Build.Exceptions.BuildAbortedException: Build was canceled. MSBuild.exe could not be launched as a child node as it could not be found at the location "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\MSBuild.exe". If necessary, specify the correct location in the BuildParameters, or with the MSBUILD_EXE_PATH environment variable.
    \intspt.vcxproj : error MSB4014:    at Microsoft.Build.BackEnd.NodeManager.AttemptCreateNode(INodeProvider nodeProvider, NodeConfiguration nodeConfiguration)
    intspt.vcxproj : error MSB4014:    at Microsoft.Build.BackEnd.NodeManager.CreateNode(NodeConfiguration configuration, NodeAffinity nodeAffinity)
    intspt.vcxproj : error MSB4014:    at Microsoft.Build.Execution.BuildManager.PerformSchedulingActions(IEnumerable`1 responses)
    intspt.vcxproj : error MSB4014:    at Microsoft.Build.Execution.BuildManager.HandleNewRequest(Int32 node, BuildRequestBlocker blocker)
    intspt.vcxproj : error MSB4014:    at Microsoft.Build.Execution.BuildManager.IssueRequestToScheduler(BuildSubmission submission, Boolean allowMainThreadBuild, BuildRequestBlocker blocker)

    I have installed KBKB2298853 and repaired VS2010 and related SP1 also.  But still the builds are failing.

    In this https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/535129/error-msb4014-when-building-any-visual-c-project thread i saw this is the bug in .Net framework and it is fixed in next version of Framework.

    May i know the version of .Net framework which i can install ?

    Thanks

    Yes, it needs to use .NET Framework 4.5. If you are still want to using .NET Framework 4, you can check the way provided by Hans Passant on this thread:

  • Hello,

    >>May i know the version of .Net framework which i can install ?

    Since you are using VS2010, you can use the .NET Framework 4 and lower version, and for .NET Framework 4.5, it needs VS2012 at last.

    Here is a list of all the prerequisites installed with Visual Studio 2010:

    If I misunderstand, please let me know.
