Recently I installed TFS 2013.2 and modified some Build Templates. I also installed a separate Build Server that executes these builds for me.
My build template was based on the default TFS 2013 Build template (Tfvctemplate.12.xaml)
When my build executed, it ran for a while, but eventually it stopped with a nasty error message
An error occurred while copying diagnostic activity logs to the drop location. Details: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.WebApi, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one
of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)
The strangest thing was that my drop folder could be found and that the logs were there as well.
After searching for a while I found that it was all about 2 assemblies that were introduced in TFS 2013
- · Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.Common.dll
- · Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.WebApi.dll
I copied the assemblies to the Team Foundation Server Tools Directory (normally here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 12.0\Tools )
And my error was gone!
Hope this helps !
