Using NUBuild with VS 2005

Feb 17, 2011 at 4:07 PM

I've downloaded the latest source code and am trying to open the NUBuild.sln file in VS 2005. Getting an error that says the file was created with a newer version. Am I unable to use NUBuild with VS 2005? The user guide suggests it can be used with 2003, 2005 and 2008.

Hi Reneel

My applogies !!! As I have enhanced the application I started to use latest version of Visual Studio (2008, 2010) which generates an incompatible project structure i.e. one which cannot be open with earlier version of Visual Studios ... I'll update the docs.. In the meantime here's what you cna do:

  1. Create a new empty Console App named NuBuild in Vb.Net using VS 2005
  2. then simply add the .vb files (fromt eh downlaoed source code)
  3. Build and project
  4. Run the exe

this should help you ... let me know if it works out and also if you can send me the source I'll upload it seperatly as VS2005 source code so that other people can also benifit (i.e. who ar esuing a older version of VS)
