Description Alex Earl 2012-05-31 00:04:42 UTC
Microsoft.Build.Tasks makefile generates assemblies with the version in the name. These files are copied to the class/lib/PROFILE directory without renaming them to remove the version, so that when unit tests are run the correct version of the assembly is not loaded and the version is always loaded. This causes tests which require the 3.5 or 4.0 profile version to run to fail.

The issue isn't actually that the version is in the name, that is correct, the issue is that the tests don't use the correct version when building the test dll.

The issue was in the test...it was not setting ToolsVersion correctly.
