Configure project files and folders for Azure dev ops build

Sat May 15, 2021 2:38 am

I have an existing Visual Studio project that is working. I've added files and folders to the project. Now I am trying to build the installer project in Azure Dev Ops and expectedly it cannot find the files and folders because the paths are not relative to the project, they are physical paths on my local machine.

I'm guessing the files and folders need to be added as a relative path from the project file so the advanced installer build task can find it when it does the project build. How do I modify my files to be relative paths? I don't see an option anywhere to do that.

Paths are stored (in AIP) by default as relative to the project file (AIP), if they reside on the same logical drive as the AIP.
Otherwise, they are stored in absolute form.

For more information about this, please refer to the following forum thread where I have explained this more in depth:

Files and folders contains invalid paths

Hope this helps!
