Couple of questions. Is there a "hello world" for MSBuild extension pack? Something that would show that all the paths are correct and the software libraries are installed? I have noticed that directory C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\ExtensionPack\4.0\MSBuild.Extens
ionPack.dll does not exist but the installed directory is C:\Program Files\MSBuild\ExtensionPack\4.0\MSBuild.ExtensionPack.dll.
