Process 'msbuild.exe' exited with code '1' RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am building a project with TFS through MSBuild Task which is executing with the build Agent. Though Project is getting build with Zero error and then Task is Failing after completing successfully build with One single line Error message "Process 'msbuild.exe' exited with code '1'.".

    And my same project is getting build with the command line(all included parameters which is passing while TFS

    build) on the same build machine.

    As we can see there is an issue with Powershell script execution which is autogenerated to run build machine tasks.

    but I am not able to find the problem..!

    Environment Setup-

    TFS2018(on premises) on The same network.

    Build Agent-VS2015Express Web/Windows,

     os-Windows Server2012 R2 Standard,

    Build Agent Version - <g class="gr_ gr_419 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling" data-gr-id="419" id="419">vsts</g>-agent-win-x64-2.136.1.

    My Error Log - 

    30 Warning(s)

  • Trata de averiguar si estan usando agentes privados, en esos agentes buscar que tengan las configuraciones de los variables de atributos donde se encuentre el msbuild.
