Building Silverlight 4 apps with Team Build 2010

March 7th, 2011 · No Comments · Team Foundation Build (TF Build)

You need to install the Siverlight SDK on your build servers!... and run the 32-bit Build Tools on a 64-bit machine.

Error messages:

The imported project "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\Silverlight\v4.0\Microsoft.Silverlight.CSharp.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.


C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\Silverlight\v4.0\Microsoft.Silverlight.Common.targets (104): The Silverlight 4 SDK is not installed.

Required Steps:

  1. Install Silverlight 4 SDK on Build Agents.
  2. In the Build Definition, change the MSBuild Platform from Auto to x86, as described here.
