### Description

Using Team City, the build will fail due to 

Error executing task CopyMdbFiles: Path is empty unless that task is removed

If the CopyMdbFiles task is removed, the build works. The difference is visible in the attached files:

1. On line 333 of the original file, I removed the reference to _CopyMdbFiles from the target _StripEmbeddedLibraries.

2. On line 1274, I commented out the _CopyMdbFiles target.
