Jim Lamb has blogged about how to CustomizableOutDir using Team Build 2010 as you might want have the assemblies dropped in a custom Folder structure instead of having all assemblies in one Drop Folder, which is the default behavior.
When applying this workaround to a Solution containing an ASP.Net Project you might be missing the _PublishedWebsites folder in the Drop Folder structure:
Assuming you have configured the Team Build Workflow as Jim suggested:
You can workaround the problem by using a different definition for OutputPath and OutDir in the Webapplication.csproj File: <PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Debug|AnyCPU' "> <DebugSymbols>true</DebugSymbols> <DebugType>full</DebugType> <Optimize>false</Optimize> <OutDir Condition=" '$(TeamBuildOUtDir)'!=''">$(TeamBuildOutDir)\$(SolutionName)\$(MSBuildProjectName)\</OutDir> <OutputPath>bin\</OutputPath> <DefineConstants>DEBUG;TRACE</DefineConstants> <ErrorReport>prompt</ErrorReport> <WarningLevel>4</WarningLevel> </PropertyGroup>
The reason why it’s failing is because the _CopyWebApplication Target will be skipped. To figure out if this is the case you can check your MSbuild log fole the following line:
Target "_CopyWebApplication" skipped, due to false condition; (!$(Disable_CopyWebApplication) And '$(OutDir)' != '$(OutputPath)'
That’s it. The Issue has been already reported via Connect.
