HRESULT '8000000A' in Visual Studio 2017 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created setup project for WPF application and need to setup automatic build.  So I am trying to build application from command project. I could not able to build setup project using following command. 

    "Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\Common7\IDE\devenv" D:\Projects\Pos.sln /rebuild "Release|Any CPU".

    I have been receiving below error

    ------ Starting pre-build validation for project 'Pos.Setup' ------ 
    ERROR: An error occurred while validating.  HRESULT = '8000000A'

    ------ Pre-build validation for project 'Pos.Setup' completed ------
    11>------ Rebuild All started: Project: Pos.Setup, Configuration: Release ------
    ========== Rebuild All: 10 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========

    I tried with MSBuild. But msbuild will not support setup project (The project file "Pos.Setup.vdproj" is not supported by MSBuild and cannot be built). Am using visual studio installer -> Setup Project.

    I have gone through the every website I could not able to find the answer.  Any help?

  • Hi KPam1234,

    Please try to right click "Detected Dependencies" and "Refresh Dependencies" in "Solution Explorer".

    And here I found a similar thread maybe you can refer to.

    An error occurred while validating. HRESULT = '8000000A'

    Hope this can help you.

  • After refreshing the dependencies also it is not working. the provided thread seems to be a workaround. should I go with third party packager?
