You may receive the target "ResolveAssemblyReferences" does not exist in the project error when loading the Visual Studio solution with the .aiproj:

The error can be encountered after upgrading to the 13.0 version of Advanced Installer.

This issue will be fixed in the next version of Advanced Installer. Until then, you can use the following workaround:

Please edit the AdvInstExtTasks.Targets file from C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Caphyon\Advanced Installer (install folder of the MSBuild):

Code: Select all

 <Target Name="Clean" >

  <Target Name="ResolveAssemblyReferences">
at the end of the file, before closing the </Project> tag.

So, it should be something as follow:
