Issue compiling using dotnet (instead of msbuild)

Post by PR.Paul.H » Tue Aug 06, 2019 3:25 pm

Not a show stopper but does Ranorex support compiling using .Net Core? i.e. 'dotnet build' ? I'm inheriting some work from a former developer and was attempting it on a whim but saw errors that it could not resolve the references to Ranorex.

Supported? I would say no since it is a deviation from the current design, not tested, and can lead to unintended behavior. Possible? Potentially, but I have never seen it used by anyone. If you don't mind me asking, what is the benefits of building with .Net core & dotnet build over using the standard MSBuild? Are you experiencing issues with MSBuild?

Ranorex support the compiling using dotnet. Here they provide the .sln file. You can just open in visual Studio and build it.
Please let me know if you need any details.
