Using VSDevEnv for Visual Studio 2003

Aug 14, 2012 at 4:35 PM

This might be a stupid noob post but here goes.

I'm using the VSDevEnv Activity to try and build a VS 2003 Solution.  Everything looks like it's wired up corectly. I'm forcing VS 2003 in the activity properties rather than using the "auto" option.

When the build runs you can see that the command line generated by the activity is

E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE\ "E:\b\92\3564\Sources\Proc\mySolution.sln" /Build "Release|Mixed Platforms" /Out "E:\b\92\3564\Binaries\vs2003.log"

However the Visual Studio 2003 command line doesn't take a paramiter for platform i.e. the command should be

E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE\ "E:\b\92\3564\Sources\Proc\mySolution.sln" /Build "Release" /Out "E:\b\92\3564\Binaries\vs2003.log"

So my question is, am I doing something dumb, or should I raise an Issue?

If it is correct that VS2003 does not accept a platform parameter, then it is most likely a bug in this activity. Please raise an issue and we should be able to fix it as part of the August release
