Description Cody Beyer (MSFT) 2015-07-28 22:47:54 UTC
### 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.

Any chance we can get the Diagnostic build output for this? 
Should just be a case of adding  /v:d to the command line that TeamCity is running and capturing the build log.
