An error has occurred while validating the configuration settings meninuniformsdating com
Making a (random) adjustment and rebuilding will make it seem like it is fixed.Just rebuildng would have make the problem disapear as well.And it came on even if I set all projects to be build in a current configuration and the setup project not to.The problem with the issue is that it is a race condition.If you are still suffering this issue then you can try to change the DWORD value for the following registry value to 0: This just happened on VS2015, and the registry fix worked for me too. I've logged one already to request turning off auto-detect dependencies, which has caused me no end of pain - and which may actually help if that's the root cause.
We've worked around this issue by triggering the MSI build a second time when it fails a first time.Not nice, but it works most of the time (error rate is down from ~ 10% to ~ 1%). I had been scouring the internet to find why exactly it was happening, and ran across numerous Microsoft replies that were vague and unhelpful, to say the least.I have just been re-triggering the build when it fails, but was hoping for a more elegant solution. Update for those who got this issue for VS2013 or VS2015 after upgrading a VS200X setup project using the Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects extension.We had done all of this and still the scripted build didn't work, which is why I posted the question on here. This project was indeed upgraded from a VS2010 version.

The error is There are a few results returned searching for a solution to this problem (including several pages on Stack Overflow) and they pretty much all boil down to the one suggestion of adding or setting a value of 0 for Enable Out Of Proc Build to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Visual Studio\14.0_Config\MSBuild We followed this advice and, while it allowed us to build the setup projects from a command line on the build machine, it hasn't helped with the team build.
