Description

I'm trying to use Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Project to build a web deployment package on server running Windows 2008 R2 with:

.NET Framework 4 

Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package

Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 

According to the Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Project site, the only required software is Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0

I've found this not to be true. Additionally, even with the Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package and Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 installed, the project still encounters MSBuild errors, such as:

[18:39:10]: [Step 2/3] (AspNetMerge target) ->
[18:39:10]: [Step 2/3] C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\WebDeployment\v10.0\Microsoft.WebDeployment.targets(1589,9): error MSB6004: The specified task executable location "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\WebDeployment\v10.0\aspnet_merge.exe" is invalid.


How do I get MSBuild to build my Web Deployment project using only the "required software" of .Net Framework 4.0?

Please see the comments from Ming Chen under this blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2010/05/26/visual-studio-2010-web-deployment-projects-rtw-available-now.aspx

for the additional target files that you need if you aren't doing a full VS installation.

Please let us know if you are still having issues with this.
