If you search the output for '5 Error(s)' you'll find the errors
Comment 2 Lluis Sanchez 2016-02-04 10:26:45 UTC
Can you still reproduce this?
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2016-02-04 10:39:46 UTC
It's possible this was related to the crashing msbuild issue i was hitting before. Neither this nor the crashing msbuild happen with newer 4.3.2 builds
