Devart dotConnect for Oracle in VS2010

Post by marc.wuergler » Wed 22 Jul 2009 14:20


When I try to compile my solution, I keep on getting the following error for all my projects. Any idea?

The "DevartEntityDeploy" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.20506\Devart.Data.Entity.Build.Tasks.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Data.Entity.Build.Tasks, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.

Thanks for your help.

Try to delete the string from the %WINDOWS%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Microsoft.Common.targets file.

We have fixed this problem.
The fix will be included in the next build.

I get the same error when compiling my solution (composed by several projects) in VS2008 and I cannot find those lines in neither file such Microsoft.Common.targets/Tasks/CSharp.targets... etc.

Moreover, I cannot find the License Information Dialog which appears in the documentation (Licensing part). In my Tools -> Oracle menu appears only Migration Wizard and the Home Page and About options.

Could you help me, please?

Luix, please remove (or rename) the \Program Files\MSBuild\v3.5\Custom.After.Microsoft.Common.targets file. This should fix the problem.

Probably, you have installed the Express edition of dotConnect for Oracle. Application that uses Express Edition doesn't need the Devart license to be built in its assembly.
